Advanced Reservoir Simulation

Fees: 5000 $ CAD

About the Course

This course is aimed at developing a new perspective in reservoir simulation. This course introduces reservoir simulation of complex formations with advanced models that are not currently available in the market. Unlike the majority of reservoir simulation approaches, this course helps participants question the fundamentals of reservoir simulation. Mathematical developments of new governing equations based on in- depth understanding of the factors influencing fluid flow in porous media under different flow conditions are introduced. Behavior of flow through matrix and fractured systems in the same reservoir, heterogeneity and fluid/rock properties discrepancies, Darcy and non-Darcy flow are among the issues that are thoroughly addressed in this course. New diffusivity equations are presented and their behavior analysed vis a vis Darcy’s traditional diffusivity equation. An efficient non-linear solver with capability of solving governing equations without linearization is presented. The concept of multiple solutions is presented and the role of cloud points, rather than linear solutions discussed. Case studies are presented for complex reservoirs for which conventional techniques break down. A fluid flow/stress modeling technique is presented for updating rock property variations as effective stresses increase during reservoir depletion. This model is supposed to concurrently work with the introduced flow models presented in this course. It is shown that the inclusion of the above-mentioned dynamic features can improve accuracy and change the bottom line up to 25%, making significant impact on reservoir management.
