An IMPEC Compositional Miscible Gas Flooding Simulator (UTCOMP)

The main tasks in this project are to maintain and expand the capability of our compositional equation-of-state reservoir simulator (UTCOMP). The ongoing research will focus on:

  • Extension of the gridding capabilities to include finite volume discretization method in conjunction with unstructured grids
  • Development and implementation of a wellbore model
  • Modeling asphaltene precipitation and deposition in the reservoir and wellbore
  • Numerical enhancements such as dynamic memory management, alternative solvers, etc.
