ECLIPSE Blackoil Reservoir Simulation

4.6 Average client rating (based on 1054 attendee reviews)

The ECLIPSE industry-reference Blackoil simulator offers the most complete and robust set of numerical solutions for fast and accurate prediction of dynamic behavior—for all types of reservoirs and degrees of complexity, structure, geology, fluids, and development schemes. ECLIPSE is  a fully implicit, three-phase, 3D, general purpose black-oil simulator that includes several advanced and unique features. In this course, you will discover the various solutions ECLIPSE offers over the entire spectrum of reservoir simulation. This training focuses on understanding ECLIPSE syntax rather than simulation methodology.
