Practical Aspects of Reservoir Simulation

By completing the Practical Aspects of Reservoir Simulation Course, the attendees will learn how 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 studies
  • Identify and eliminate causes of numerical problems
  • Perform a history match

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

Top Learning Objectives

  • Understand the Principles and Equations Involved in Reservoir Simulation
  • Discover the Data Requirements for Conducting A Reservoir Simulation Study
  • Apply Current Gridding Practice In Using Coarse And Finely Gridded Models To Incorporate Heterogeneity
  • Master the Simulation Study Approach Which Leads To A Quality Result
  • Identify the Different Types Of Models Available
  • Understand and practice History Matching techniques
  • Identify the errors present in numerical simulators and how it impacts the results
  • Implement the different types of Advanced simulation techniques (fractured reservoir simulation or streamline simulation and compositional simulation)
  • Learn the different tools, packages and recent software utilized in the conducting reservoir simulation studies

Who Should Attend?

The course is designed for all employees who are associated with reservoir simulation such as reservoir engineer and petroleum engineers. Attendees are assumed to have a reasonably good understanding of terms and methods applied in reservoir simulation.
