PET 428E - Simulating of Geosystems

Course Objectives

1. Acquaint the students with general knowledge in numerical simulation, widely used tool in industry,
2. Develop students’ ability to apply integrated knowledge of math, basic sciences including geosciences to the solution of problems related to fluid/heat flow in reservoir and reservoir performance predictions,
3. Provide students with information on numerical analysis methods to improve their quantitative capabilities in solving reservoir engineering problems of geosystems,
4. Develop students’ ability to write their own computer simulators and use available computer software for simulation of geosystems,
5. Promote teamwork among students with assigning group projects.

Course Description

Simulation in general (incentives for simulation, planning a simulation study). Equations for mass/heat flow in permeable/porous media. Modeling concepts (finite differences, 1D, 2D and 3D mass/heat flow domains). Selecting reservoir-rock and fluid-properties data. Selecting grid block and time steps. Placement of wells in grid blocks. History matching and predicting future performance of geosystems by numerical simulation. Applications of simulation to oil and gas reservoirs as well as geothermal reservoirs.
