Practical Reservoir Simulation

About the Course

Dynamic reservoir models are important when investigating reservoir behavior, optimizing reservoir performance, designing complex wells, estimating uncertainties and providing the basis for risk management. The course is designed to give an introduction to the practical aspects of reservoir simulation with the basic concepts of numerical simulation without complicated mathematics. You will learn about data gathering for simulation models, how to construct the dynamic flow model and how to perform a simulation study and will be introduced to the general approaches to modelling including history matching of field data and forecasting future performance.
