Course Description

July 27, 2022 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM MDT (GMT-6)

Learn the concepts of CMG’s reservoir simulators – black oil (IMEX), compositional (GEM) and advanced thermal/chemical processes (STARS) – with an emphasis on advanced numerical tuning features available in STARS. Review specific analysis techniques including:

  • Analysis of numerical output parameters 
  • Fine tuning of the input data 
  • Diagnosis of small timestep problems
  • Non-convergence 

Practice modifying data and analyzing simulation results using Builder and Results. Key factors in tuning and managing dynamic gridding and parallelization will be also discussed.

After completing the course, engineers, geologists or technical personnel will be able to fine tune and adjust their own dataset and improve the performance of more complicated STARS simulation processes. 

Simulation Engineer & Consulting Coordinator, is an expert in the simulation of unconventional oil or gas (CBM, shale and tight), hydraulic fracturing, microseismic, optimization and uncertainty analysis. He holds a Bachelor of Science, Oil and Gas Engineering degree from the University of Calgary, Canada. Alex started with CMG in the Visualization team, assisting with the development and testing of Builder, Results, CMOST AI and Launcher before joining the Consulting, Support and Training team in 2009.
