Course Description

October 10 and 11, 2023 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM MDT (GMT-6)

Learn SAGD recovery and how to simulate this bitumen recovery process using CMG’s thermal and advanced processes reservoir simulator STARS. Create, modify, and analyze simulation datasets and results using Builder and Results in this intensive hands-on training course. Capture relevant physical processes and operating strategies and understand the applications of various wellbore models available in STARS.

Through a series of case studies and practical exercises, you will build proficiency needed to design typical SAGD simulation datasets.
