An Improved Spatial Clustering for the Optimization of Infill Well Placement in High-Water-Cut Oilfield

A method of infill well placement optimization based on improved k-means spatial clustering is presented, in which the remaining oil distribution from reservoir simulation is studied and converted to cluster data. In addition to the spatial positioin of remaining oil, the water saturation and the faults are also been taken into account in the clustering… CONTINUE READING
