ABSTRACT of Presentation
Reservoir Simulation has evolved over a period of some 70 or so years to become a routinely used tool for understanding, predicting and optimizing reservoir performance. Alternative technologies like Decline Curve Analysis, Rate Transient Analysis, and Data Analytics are sometimes touted as offering similar results to reservoir simulation. Yet most engineers still believe that understanding and optimizing reservoir and well performance requires a physics-based modelling solution that can account for the multitude of real-work phenomena that influence reservoir behavior.
This presentation will focus on several recent developments in reservoir simulation that make the use of this technology more as a result in speedups in the actual simulation process itself and in the automation and control of multiple simultaneous runs to achieve history-matching and optimization objectives more quickly. Examples will be presented of the application of reservoir simulation to onshore unconventional plays and to offshore deepwater plays.

Registration & Walk-ins
All attendees are encouraged to register and pay online for this event. This is a more efficient means of registering for the event and enables the registration process at the meeting to move much faster. Walk-in space is available on a seat-limited basis at a fee $5 more than the on-line registration fee.
Parking for this event
The TOTAL Plaza building (1201 Louisiana Street across from the Houston Hyatt Regency Hotel) is connected to the downtown Houston tunnel system. Using the tunnel system, those working downtown can walk to our meeting in air-conditioned comfort.
If you will drive to this meeting, the following summarizes available parking:
The image above shows how to access the valet parking area at the new location of the Petroleum Club. Enter from Milam Street and exit onto Louisiana Street. Parking fee for this valet parking is $15. Be sure to get discount parking sticker at registration table if you use this valet parking service.
Surface parking lots are available to the south of the TOTAL Plaza building (between this building and the former EXXON Building), including one surface lot adjacent to the TOTAL Plaza Building - pay at meter (cost ~ $9). Other surface lots in the area cost $8 - $9 and they frequently are full by mid-morning.
Parking is also available in the Hyatt Regency Hotel parking garage across the street. Prices vary depending on time in the garage. Cost for 2 hours of parking is $12. Parking is also available via valet at the Louisiana Street entrance of the hotel. Cost is about $10.
