The course provides 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 technology. The course incudes the theoretical basis for numerical simulation of fluid flow in hydrocarbon reservoirs. The partial differential equations required for single-phase and multi-phase fluid flow in porous media are addressed, as well as numerical methods for solving the equations using finite difference methods. Input data requirements and applications of simulation models for history matching and prediction of field performance will be discussed. Practical use and hands-on experience of industry standard software is used to develop reservoir simulation skills.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1 two-hour written examination paper (60%), continuous assessment (40%). Detailed breakdown will be provided at the beginning of the course.
Resit: The re-sit will comprise of re-doing the failed element/s (exam and/or coursework assessment/s) from the 1st attempt with a maximum CGS mark of D3. The marks for other elements (successfully passed) will be carried over. Resit mark of either RP or RF will be recorded.
a) Assessment grade and feedback comments will be provided on the coursework report.
b) Students can receive feedback on their progress with the Course on request at practical computer sessions.
