CANCELLED: SPEI: Fundamentals of Reservoir Simulation


Course Description

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


Learning Objectives

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.
