This new e-symposium highlights methodologies for managing the wide range of input data used in geomodeling, and approaches to building fit for purpose 3D geological models. It shows how to design modeling schemes, identify uncertainties and how to apply results to real life field development. It is scheduled on 29 October at 2:00 pm (CST).
