PTE524 Reservoir Simulation

[3–0, 3 cr.]

 Reservoir simulation for petroleum reservoir characteristics and behavior, pore volume, fluid distribution and movement, and recover; result simulation studies of optimized field development and management plans which maximize the value and/or reserves of producing properties; governing equations for development of several analytical models for reservoir evaluation and analysis; finite difference approximations to the diffusivity equation and the application of those approximations for reservoir simulations; application to common reservoir engineering problems.

 Pre-requisite: PTE322 Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering.
