Abstract

The results are presented of a comparison of four different methods of interpolating observed hydrocarbon depths in monitoring wells, as well as a comparison of different methods of selecting sampling points for interpolation. The results provide criteria for selecting one interpolation method over another, under different scenarios. The methods analyzed are: (1) inverse-distance weighting; (2) punctual kriging; (3) minimum surface curvature; and (4) Akima's quintic polynomial.
