Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Akhil Datta-Gupta
|The use of streamline technology is becoming common for reservoir flow visualization, dynamic reservoir characterization, and optimal flood management. The power of the streamlines can be exploited using both finite-difference and streamline simulators. This course is designed to cover introductory and advanced concepts in streamline technology and its applications for reservoir characterization, reservoir management/optimization and field development strategy. This course is not limited to streamline simulation but exposes the power of streamlines in general. The course will involve a combination of theoretical discussion, practical applications, and computer exercises to provide hands-on training on the methods that can later be applied using any commercial streamline simulation software. A copy of the SPE textbook Streamline Simulation: Theory and Practice by Akhil Datta-Gupta and Michael J. King along with streamline simulation software will be provided to each course participant. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.|
Practicing geoscientists and engineers. No formal training in reservoir simulation is required other than knowledge of basic mathematics.
