Mission of the SPE-GCS Computational Fluid Dynamics Study Group is to provide a common platform for CFD practitioners in Oil & Gas industry to foster knowledge sharing and networking, facilitate discussions, education/learning/training and develop boarder consensus on best practices in the area of CFD modelling for applications including (but not limited to) Near wellbore reservoir modelling, Drilling and Completion, Flow Assurance, Process and Process Safety, Offshore and Deepwater, Refining and Petrochemicals…
Scope for CFD modelling is gaining momentum and growing rapidly in Oil & Gas industry. It is important to set proper expectations through good understanding of opportunities and challenges in CFD modeling. By raising awareness and providing a platform for industry professionals to network, this Study Group increases confidences on CFD predictions and influences sound decision making.
To address the growing interest within the SPE community, the CFD Study Group organizes knowledge‐sharing events by key industry practitioners, thought leaders, and decision makers. The target audience for these events include oil and gas executives and managers, CFD practitioners, industry professionals, and subject matter experts from operators, service companies, consultants, academia, software vendors, and government labs.
