Petrel Thermal Reservoir Simulation

The focus of this course is on how to leverage Petrel E&P Software Platform Reservoir Engineering tools to create thermal reservoir simulation models.

In this course, you use Petrel to:

- build a 3D simulation model based on geological input data

- add wells and well control rules

- create or import thermal fluid models and rock physics functions

-add thermal boundary conditions

- initialize the model and run simulations

- view the simulation results using available Petrel tools for results analysis and visualization

- design a well trajectory using an interactive approach

- access the INTERSECT simulator and familiarize with the INTERSECT input and output file structure including datasets modification.

During the course, the practical application of most of the available tools in Petrel used for a typical reservoir engineering workflow is discussed and illustrated in the exercises. The manual is structured in modules with relevant lessons and exercises to help you practice the lessons learned in each module.
