The purpose of this seminar is to introduce the fundamental concepts and elements of reservoir simulation. This is an overview of simulation technology, taught from a physical perspective. There are no equations used in this course. The various phases (from model building through prediction) and types (singlewell, sector, full-field) of models will be discussed. This is not intended to be a hands-on course. This will be very fast-paced for those who want an overview of simulation types before getting involved in more in-depth study or practice. Topics covered will include:
- Theory of Numerical Simulation
- Planning a Simulation Study
- Data Acquisition and Analysis
- Fluid Properties
- Rock-Fluid Interaction Relationships
- Geologic Model Development
- Grid Construction
- Model Initialization
- Prepare Well History
- History Match
- Prediction Cases
Review of Simulation Models
Upon completion, participants will understand the basics, such as why and how a model is built, data sources, how wells are modeled, and what a company is looking for in a reservoir simulation study.
Who Should Attend
This course is intended for those who have had little exposure to this technology and need a "quick start" on the learning curve. New college hires will benefit especially.
