17.3.3 Streamlines: Interpretation

Topic Version1Published09/11/2015
For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

Streamlines use the RESQML feature/interpretation/representation knowledge hierarchy (Figure 17.3.1-1). For example, two representations of a specific velocity field that share a feature and an interpretation may differ in their spatial resolution, but they are expected to represent the same underlying velocity field. The most common example of this is where we may choose to construct the streamlines for a particular producer, e.g., locally at high density, and then again create a full field view of the streamlines in the reservoir with fairly uniform density. Two representations that share a streamlines feature but not an interpretation may differ in any number of ways. For example, they may have been developed from different realizations of properties in a subsurface model. In this case, they would have different but related velocity fields. Finally, two representations that do not share a streamlines feature object have no specific relationship to each other.
