Who Should Attend? This short course is designed for junior to mid-senior level reservoir engineers who want to “fast track” in reservoir simulation by a comprehensive overview of the key topics and practical aspects.
Course Objectives

  • Numerical physics of reservoir simulation.
  • Data requirements for conducting a study
  • Current practice in using coarse and finely gridded models to incorporate heterogeneity
  • Simulation study approach which leads to a quality result.
  • Different types of models available, i.e. compositional, dual porosity, etc.

Course Description
This training course will provide a comprehensive coverage of the simulation key topics, challenges, pitfalls and the approach to a quality result.
The participants will be trained in the methods and use of simulation software for practical exercises throughout this course.
