Many of our clients claim that existing reservoir simulation software does not cover all their needs, and requires considerable improvements in functionality. In many cases, the standard simulator modules do not provide sufficient accuracy to model different phenomena. Implementation of some basic effects in the model takes a great number of manual operations making the solution impractical.
Oddly enough, in many cases implementation of a client request takes only a few hours. However, major players that have thousands of active users are forced to ignore most of the requests despite a solution that is often very simple. We believe that efficient interaction with the users is required for development of a top quality software product. So, we do our best to adjust the simulator based on the client calls from user support.
In addition, we offer consulting for specific module development. Based on an individual client requests, many of these modules later become parts of the product. For instance, the modules for workover modeling, or Bright Water flooding were developed in this way. Keeping a fairly young and flexible simulator we are able to develop it in different directions. In case you need a tool that does not exist at present, you may want to consider tNavigator.
