Reservoir Simulation Strategies

Description:

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.

Objectives:

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
