Course Description

Wed, Oct 27, 2021 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM MDT (GMT-6)

Typically for unconventional modelling in reservoir simulators, the hydraulic fractures are assumed to be present at the start of simulation and only the production period is modelled.  In this course, CMG’s reservoir simulators (IMEX, GEM and STARS) will be used to model hydraulic fracture creation and propagation.  Three different techniques will be demonstrated with varying degrees of complexity including low fidelity (pressure based), medium fidelity (Geomech-based) and high fidelity (geomech based).  In addition to learning how to implement these fracture creation workflows the application of when to use them will be discussed.  By modelling both the hydraulic fracture creation and production the complete unconventional well lifecycle can be modelling in CMG.  

Tirth Thaker first joined Computer Modelling Group Ltd. in 2013 as a Reservoir Simulation Intern. During his internship, he provided outstanding technical support to worldwide CMG customers. Upon graduating in 2015, he accepted a permanent position as a Reservoir Simulation Engineer in the Consulting, Support and Training department. Over the past 2.5 years, he has gained solid industry experience, specializing in thermal recovery processes, advanced wellbore modelling and unconventional reservoir simulation. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering, with a minor in Petroleum Engineering, from the University of Calgary.
