Course Description

October 24 and 25, 2022 - 9:00am to 4:00pm MDT (GMT-6)

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
Razieh is a Reservoir Simulation Engineer at CMG with more than two years of experience providing technical support for CMG’s clients. She taught several courses at CMG including "Introduction to CMG's modelling workflows", "Introduction to Thermal EOR Modelling", "Modelling Unconventional Reservoirs", and "CMOST for Conventional and Tight Reservoirs". Razieh is working towards her Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering at the University of Calgary. For her thesis, she developed a new method to directly measure absolute adsorption isotherms in shale reservoirs. Razieh holds a master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Regina. Her M.Sc. thesis is on Improving heavy oil reservoirs recovery by ASP flooding.
