Course Description:

Duration: 5 days

Presenter: Professor Martin Blunt (Imperial College)

Prerequisites: A basic understanding of multiphase fluid flow and some knowledge of numerical methods.

Aims: To give an overview of the state-of-the-art in field-scale reservoir simulation.

Who should attend? Reservoir engineers working on simulation or planning to do so.  Geoscientists who work with simulation engineers.

Learning Outcomes: The course will give an overview of different simulation approaches and their strengths and weaknesses.  Some of the major applications of reservoir simulation will be illustrated through recent case histories studied by the instructor or published in the recent literature.
