Before the turn of the 21st century, GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) computing was commonplace, but mostly used for computer gaming and professional graphics rendering. Now recent advances in technology have brought blazingly fast GPU computing to scores of industries, including oil and gas exploration and production. The possibility of using GPU computing for reservoir simulation […]

You’ve completed the subsurface simulation runs on your reservoir, and you’re satisfied with the accuracy of the model you’ve built. Now let’s configure your surface network to match what equipment you’ll need to handle the oil/gas/water you’ll be producing as you deplete the reservoir. Whether your production will be onshore, or on a floating or […]

Yes, you probably need both. Used together, these two modules give you the most comprehensive reservoir simulation pre- and post-processing — we’ll explain why in a moment. But first, you need to understand a bit of the history behind reservoir simulation software. You may have used (or are using) programs from a reservoir simulation system […]

You have a big oil and gas reservoir to simulate, either for new field development or for making operational and investment decisions on an existing field. You have your static geological model at hand; to create it, you likely used one of these reservoir simulation software programs: The wildly expensive, overwhelmingly difficult, more-complex-than-it-needs-to-be program; or […]

The “ground floor” of any reservoir model is its static geological model. Make sure it’s a sturdy, accurate foundation to build upon. You’re ready to develop, extract and produce an efficient and economic oil and gas well. Or you’re looking to improve recovery in a developed field as part of your ongoing reservoir management plan. […]

Reservoir modeling doesn’t have to be a time-consuming, expensive pain-in-the-neck process. New integrated software tools make it quick and (almost) fun! Wouldn’t it be great if your reservoir simulations were easier, faster and cheaper to run? Wouldn’t your job be less complicated if all the different data inputs you need from petrophysicists, geophysicists, and reservoir […]
