INTERSECT Reservoir Simulation

The INTERSECT* Reservoir Simulation course shows you  how to construct and run simulation models using INTERSECT. The training solves a variety of reservoir simulation problems, and you become acquainted with the features of INTERSECT.

The course takes you through full field development workflows and demonstrates the flexibilities and benefits of field management with INTERSECT.

This course adopts the Petrel* platform as the primary front end for the pre- and post- processing interface.

Day 1

Module 1 presents an overview of INTERSECT software. It also introduces the Petrel project that you will use throughout the course. 

Day 2

Module 2 discusses initialization options and the concepts behind the accurate definition of an initial reservoir state. It also discusses techniques to match initial water saturation distributions provided by the petrophysicist and geomodeler. By the end of Module 2, you will history-match your simulation model and use it in the subsequent modules for reservoir management purposes.

Day 3

Module 3 presents field management strategies, such as workover scheduling, infill drilling, production balancing based on various constraints, water flooding, voidage replacement, fluid reinjection, and water alternating gas.

Day 4

Module 4 shows you advanced field management options, such as impacts of resources availability on simulation results and custom scripting to extend the capabilities of INTERSECT field management.

Day 5

Module 5 explores optimization techniques in INTERSECT.

Module 6 demonstrates ways to improve simulation performance.

Learning activity mix

Reservoir, reservoir simulation, and asset engineers

  • Overview of INTERSECT simulator
  • Model Intialization Methods
  • History Matching Techniques
  • Fundamentals of Field Management
  • Advanced Field Management Applications
  • Production Optimization with INTERSECT
  • Simulation Performance Managment

Applied reservoir engineering and simulation knowledge are the key pre-requisites for this course.

An introduction to Petrel reservoir simulation workflow is also incorporated in the course since Petrel* is used as the pre and post processing platform. However, previous attendance of Petrel Reservoir Engineering course will be an added advantage.
