This extended abstract presents a pragmatic approach to select reservoir models for dynamic simulation. The method ensures dynamic information to be used at an early stage of static model construction, avoiding unnecessary iteration loops at a later stage. It also takes advantage of investigating a large search space and encourages the integrated team to think about development options at an early stage of the dynamic simulation process. Throughout the process the goal is to limit the amount of models carried into the next modeling or simulation phases while maintaining the range of possible outcomes and maximize the understanding of the reservoir. The abstract contains several examples and ideas on how to make best use of this approach.
