Reservoir simulation: practical aspects

Reservoir simulation: practical aspects

Course announce

Course “Reservoir simulation: practical aspects” can be interesting for both young specialists who only start work with filtration models and experienced engineers.

Course program covers well-known issues for engineers in sphere of reservoir simulation:

  • Structural net and mesh dimension selection, as well as extra options application (downscaled patches, etc.). What kind of issues can occur and how to act?
  • Void model selection. Is a multiple (double) area model the only possibility to describe fractured reservoirs’ processes?
  • Hydrocarbon physical model setting. When to use “black oil” model instead of complex compositional model? What the features of “live” and “dead” oil, dry and wet gas model?
  • The choice of initial conditions setting method.  Consequences of  inequilibrium and equilibrium initialization. What is the difference between oil-water contact and free water mirror? Features of j-function calculation and application.
  • The choice of boundary conditions setting method. Analytical and numerical models of aquifer. What the features of sectorial modeling?

Students study principles and methods of models adaptation since model setting to real data and development history is mandatory stage of simulation.

For better understanding of what model parameters and how influence model behavior course provide explanation of flow between nodes and inflow from node to well calculation mechanisms. The impact of capillary pressure and wettability in modeling are provided.

The trainer and author of the program is Sergey Kurelenkov – graduate and active trainer of Heriot-Watt University with “Reservoir simulation” program. Has more than 15 years’ experience of geological and hydrodynamic modeling. Over the past 4 years he is the head of Design and Simulation department of RUSVIETPETRO Company and is responsible for support of carbonate fields’ constant models.
