Initializing simulation models

Initializing Simulation Models course is a VILT (virtual instructor led training) course delivered in real time. The coursed is designed for 4 hour sessions over a day period and is delivered using WebEx platform. The course content is structured to incorporate passive and active learning approaches to achieve unrivaled virtual training experience.

It always a good practice to properly set the initial reservoir conditions, before simulating the dynamic behavior of the reservoir.

The course focuses on the three main approaches (Equilibration, Enumeration and restart file) used to define the initial conditions of a reservoir to a simulator and recommended best practices including simulation grid QC, how perform a stability test and how to reconcile static and dynamic volume calculations. End point scaling (EPS) concepts and application are as well, covered in the course contents.

The course exercises are structured to demonstrate how to set up reservoir initial condition in the simulator using Petrel reservoir engineering workflow tools and the applications of the End Point Scaling (EPS) technique using different scenarios such as honoring initial water distribution, J-function, miscibility effect, low salinity flooding, and asphaltene deposition modeling.

To enforce application of knowledge acquired, practical exercises which illustrate the methodologies explained in the course are also provided.

After completing this course, the attendees will be able to understand how initialization and end point scaling are applied in reservoir simulation and also the ability to:

  • Use the initialization and end point scaling functionalities in ECLIPSE 
  • Initialize models with appropriate method
  • Apply end point scaling correctly

To effectively participate in the training, each attendee will required the following:

  1. Computer
  2. USB Headset
  3. Video Capabilities (720HD)
  4. Internet Access
  5. MS Office
  6. Petrel and ECLIPSE Software installed for exercises
