The 2001 SPE Comparative Solution Project is the latest in a series of comparative solution projects organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. The purpose of the projects has been to provide benchmark datasets which can be used to compare the performance of different simulators or algorithms.

The aim of the 2001 SPE Comparative Solution Project is to compare upgridding and upscaling approaches and the ability to predict performance of a waterflood through a million cell geological model.
The project will compare accuracy of solution with cost, which will be measured by the size of the coarse model rather than by cpu time).
The project is organised by Mike Christie at Heriot-Watt University and Martin Blunt at Imperial College. The results of the project will be presented at the Society of Petroleum Engineers Reservoir Simulation Symposium to be held in Houston, TX, Feb 2001.
The project has two datasets to upscale.
The first dataset is a 2D vertical cross section which is designed to be small enough to use classical pseudoisation techniques.
The second dataset is a million cell dataset where the cpu time to use classical pseudoisation would be excessive.
Results must be returned by 11th August 2000 to be included in the SPE Paper.
Results should be sent in by email to Mike Christie as an Excel spreadsheet containing the information requested in the model description.
