Target Audience: Those who have had little exposure to this technology and need a “quick start” on the learning curve.
The purpose of this seminar is to introduce in overview fashion the fundamental concepts and elements of reservoir simulation. Those who want to get an overview of this technology should attend. After attending, persons new to this area will understand the basics such as why and how a model is built, the sources of data, how wells are modeled, and facets of a reservoir simulation study. The various phases (from model building through prediction) and types (single-well, sector, full-field) of models will be discussed. This will be very fast-paced for those who want to have an overview prior to getting involved in a more in-depth way. Time permitting there may be some hands use of a simulator.
