Constraining reservoir models to available field observation is an important step in reservoir simulation process especially when models aim at further development decision making. In the past two decades, several assisted history matching methodologies have been proposed to help in the matter (gradient methods, streamlines, etc - Oliver 2011). More recently, ensemble based methodologies were adapted from other domains to perform reservoir history matching (Evensen 2007).
