Reservoir Simulation Strategies


The course is designed to give an introduction to the fundamental and practical aspects of modern reservoir simulation. Particular emphasis is placed upon the available data and its integration into a data set that reflects a coherent model of the reservoir. These aspects are reinforced with small practical examples.


By the end of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Apply the principles of reservoir engineering to numerical modeling

  • Set up, run, and analyze the results for single well, pattern and full-field models

  • Prepare fluid and rock property data in the manner required for simulation┬ástudies

  • Identify and eliminate causes of numerical problems

  • Perform a history match

  • Use the matched model to predict future performance under a variety of assumptions
