  author={Honggang Wang and David Echeverr{\'i}a Ciaurri and Louis J. Durlofsky and Alberto Cominelli},
This paper (SPE 141950) was accepted for presentation at the SPE Reservoir Simulation Symposium, The Woodlands, Texas, USA, 21–23 February 2011, and revised for publication. Original manuscript received for review 15 December 2010. Revised manuscript received for review 12 May 2011. Paper peer approved 15 July 2011. Summary Subsurface geology is highly uncertain, and it is necessary to account for this uncertainty when optimizing the location of new wells. This can be accomplished by evaluating… CONTINUE READING
