Course Description

May 24 & 25, 2022 - 9:00am to 4:00pm CDT (GMT-5)

Learn how to apply GEM’s advanced functionality to model shale and/or tight oil and gas. Identify and model different hydraulic fracture methods, including:

  • Planar fracture
  • Complex fracture networks
  • Create fractures from microseismic data using Builder

This course will teach attendees how to effectively simulate an unconventional reservoir using GEM and successfully apply uncertainty analysis concepts and assisted history matching principles to the model.

Course Content

  • Input shale gas reservoir characteristics (e.g. adsorption and diffusion) • Model a dual permeability system with a natural fracture network
  • Model planar & complex hydraulic fractures
  • Incorporate microseismic data
  • Perform sensitivity analyses & history matches for a tight reservoir using CMOST AI
  • Hands-on experience using GEM and IMEX for:
    • Shale Gas
    • Tight Oil
    • Tight Gas-Condensate

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.
