Closing the Gap: Advances in Applied Geomodeling for Hydrocarbon Reservoirs

Memoir 20 - Closing the Gap: Advances in Applied Geomodeling for Hydrocarbon Reservoirs
Edited by: David Garner, Damien Thenin, & Clayton V. Deutsch

This collection of papers is a follow up response to the success of the Gussow Geoscience Conference held October 3rd to 5th, 2011 in Banff, Alberta. The theme, Advances in Applied Geomodeling for Hydrocarbon Reservoirs — Closing the Gap, drew a strong and diverse gathering of 134 participants to the Banff Centre.

Geomodeling is an internationally applied technical discipline with a solid base of practice in Canada. In the last decade alone, there has been a tremendous growth in the number of people practicing geomodeling This Gussow was convened to gather practitioners, software vendors and geostatisticians to present and discuss materials to help focus the participants on the path to ensure the future success of the geomodeling community.
