Now let’s say you have a beautiful fit-for-purpose rock model of your reservoir – let’s open the box and find out what’s inside? All too often the properties used within the geo-model are woefully inadequate. What we need are appropriately-scaled property estimates based on statistical analysis of the available data – not just random guesses!
The aim of this chapter is too ensure the properties of your model are also fit-for-purpose and not, like Pandora’s box, full of “all the evils of mankind.”
Eros warned her not to open the box once Persephone’s beauty was inside[…] but as she opened the box Psyche fell unconscious upon the ground. (from The Golden Ass by Apuleius)
