CMG Training:
Solvents - Additives EOR Modelling using STARS

Learn how to create field scale or lab-scale models for the solvent-assisted heavy oil and bitumen recovery processes using STARS. Discuss the important mechanisms necessary for modelling any solvent based process including:

  • Solvent-bitumen mass transfer
  • Diffusion
  • Dispersion
  • Numerical dispersion
  • Grid size sensitivity
  • Change in wettability
  • Asphaltene deposition etc.

Use Builder and Results to create, modify, and analyze simulation datasets and their results. Using real data, you will build a series of typical thermal and non-thermal solvent-based bitumen recovery processes.

After completing the course, you will be able to identify when and how to make an appropriate fluid model for any solvent-assisted heavy oil recovery process.

Course Content

  • Fundamentals of PVT modeling and solvent-assisted processes
  • Characterization of bitumen and lumping of components in WinProp using lab PVT data
  • Creation of PVT model for bitumen/solvent mixtures in WinProp
  • STARS PVT Generation in WinProp: exporting the generated PVT model into STARS
  • Building the dataset for the isothermal and thermal solvent-based processes (ES-SAGD, VAPEX etc.) in STARS
  • Temperature-dependent and composition-dependent relative permeability curves
  • Modelling asphaltene precipitation and deposition in STARS
  • Detail interpretation and analysis of output results
