Course Description

Wednesday April 28, 2021 - 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM MST

Learn how to generate more efficient and reliable SAGD simulation models using advanced functionality available in STARS.

Review the practical aspects related to SAGD reservoir simulation models that affect results and run time. Practice various workflows to quality-check datasets using real-life cases. Through hands-on exercises and examples, learn how to modify typical SAGD models. 

By the end of this course, you will be able to identify and solve problematic data pertaining to input parameters such as grid properties, thermal properties, PVT Fluid Model & Well constraints.
