New approach to modeling of natural fluvial oil reservoirs

We discuss the conception of the adaptive modeling of the natural oil reservoirs. This conception is based on application of simple mathematical algorithms to imitate the physical processes, defining the reservoir structure. As an example the possibility of fluvial reservoir modeling by a cellular automata is considered.
