Reservoir Simulators: Powerful Tools for Predicting Oil and Gas Recovery

Reservoir SimulatorsListen to the webinar recording: Reservoir Simulators   Download the presentation slides

Join the Center for Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering (CPGE) on Friday, August 5, at noon for a free webinar to hear perspectives on various topics in computational methods in reservoir simulation development and application. This webinar will present an overview of procedures for coupling reservoir simulation with geomechanics that include fixed stress splitting. This also includes fracture propagation using a newly developed phase-field approach for porous media, which can treat proppant transport. Our speakers from CPGE will also include application examples for field problems such as three-dimensional computational parallel fracture propagation, stress evolution, reservoir compaction, and fault activation.

 

Reservoir Simulators

 Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding various types of reservoir simulators and gridding approaches
  • High-performance comptuing using parallel processing and computational issues in reservoir simulation
  • Understanding the role of geomechanics in reservoir simulation
  • Using coupled analysis to evaluate geomechanical impacts on reservoir performance



Slides, audio, and video will be shared via the web through Adobe Connect during the live webinar. Attendees will have a chance to ask the speaker questions through live chat comments during the session. If you've never attended a Connect Pro meeting, you can prepare in advance by testing your connection.
