    Integrated Field Management workflows - Reservoir Coupling - RILS (Remote Instructor Led Series)

    This is a Remote Instructor Led Series (RILS) training. The remote classroom delivery is a modality that takes advantage of the instructor led training content, while allowing the same content to be delivered remotely. All training sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance.

    Integrated asset models are created by connecting together existing subsurface and surface simulation models. This can deliver numerous benefits such as better understanding and representation of production system constraints enabling better field planning, production forecasting and full field optimization.

    SLB technologies offer a modern method of connecting and controlling subsurface and surface models using INTERSECT Field Management (IXFM). IXFM offers unique capabilities to couple multiple INTERSECT reservoir models and multiple surface network models. All the coupled models can be controlled and actioned by Field Management (FM) thus allowing all the capabilities and benefits of FM to be applied to the Integrated Model. 

    The workflow presented in this course is focused on reservoir coupling. INTERSECT can couple multiple reservoir simulations to enable balancing control, resource management, and reporting across several isolated reservoirs. Most of the existing Field Management capabilities are available even when coupling to more than one reservoir simulation.

    The course will be delivered in two (2) sessions lasting ~ four (4) hours each. An intensive agenda also implies homework after each session. Hence full-time commitment is expected from participants.

    Each student will need the following to attend:

    1. Windows-based PC*
    2. USB Headset
    3. Internet Access capable of 720HD video-streaming
    4. Second monitor or tablet (highly recommended)
    5. Webcam (highly recommended)

    *Hands-on exercises will be performed using locally installed Petrel and INTERSECT software; hence client machine must satisfy min. requirements. Alternatively, practical sessions can be accessed through DELFI Cloud Environment (subject to availability).
