[Opm] Guidelines for running an Eclipse model on OPM-Flow

Hello Alf,

As you said, I did not have a lot of hope, but decided to ask anyway. 
Thank you for the quick answer!

I'm not a Petroleum Engineer actually, but a BlackBox Optimization 
person. I will definitely try to get the PEs in our group to help.

If there is interest in implementation of (metaheuristic) optimization 
algorithms pluggable to OPM, I'd be happy to contribute once I get 
something decent working.

The opm-data and opm-tests repositories contain many example input decks that are supported. Basically, you need to remove unsupported keywords from the deck, possibly replacing them with supported functionality that achieves the same effect.
