Introduction To Reservoir Simulation Course

Edward Evans

Reservoir simulation is one of the most powerful tools at the disposal of a Petroleum Engineer. Rooted in established reservoir engineering equations with nearly a century of use, these equations are amalgamated and applied through simulators for a comprehensive study of reservoir performance, both reducing risk and optimizing value to the operator. This course provides an introductory exploration of reservoir simulation, delving into fundamental concepts like material balance, Darcy’s law, well inflow modeling, and their implementation in a simulator. “Introduction to Reservoir Simulation” facilitates the learning journey for newcomers to the industry or reservoir engineers shifting from analytical methods to simulation.Read more...
