KE5501: RESERVOIR SIMULATION (2018-2019)

Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


Course Overview

The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of theoretical formulation, data sources and integration into simulator, and quantification of uncertainties necessary for transforming real reservoir engineering problems into manageable numerical simulation models. This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of reservoir simulators and reservoir simulation technologies. The course incudes the theoretical basis for numerical simulation of fluid flow in hydrocarbon reservoirs. Input data requirements and applications of simulation models for history matching and prediction of field performance are discussed. Practical use and hands-on experience of industry standard software is used to developed reservoir simulation skills.
