Learn the fundamental theoretical concepts of reservoir simulation. This training course details the mathematics of the governing equations and numerical techniques that form reservoir simulation models.

You will discuss the essential data input that includes:

  • Reservoir petrophysical data
  • Multiphase SCAL rock properties data
  • Reservoir fluids PVT data
  • Data needed for model initialization
As the result of completing this course, you will gain a thorough understanding of the reservoir simulation workflow and be able to make informed decisions about various inputs, mechanisms of reservoir simulation processes and their practical implications.
