    Abstract

    Waterflood automation at a field scale is a complex coupled problem. In our analysis, data from injecting and producing wells, as well as satellite differential interferograms (InSAR) are used as the inputs. Some information processing is carried out on-line automatically, and other needs personnel expertise. Dynamic adaptive control is performed in the mixed openloop-feedback mode. Our surveillance-control system is being implemented in Sections 32 and 33 of the Lost Hills diatomite field, CA, USA.
