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.
|Second Sub Session
|15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)
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 develope reservoir simulation skills.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 two hour written examination (40%), Continuous Assessment (60%) detailed breakdown will be provided at the beginning of the course.
Resit: 1 two-hour written examination paper (40%) and the continuous assessment mark from the first attempt (60%).
There are no assessments for this course.
b) Students can receive feedback on their progress with the Course on request at practical computer sessions.
