Black Oil Simulator

This module is designed to simulate the three-phase  water, oil, gas reservoir models. Conventional syntax of input deck can be used: E100, IMEX.

This module can be used with Graphical Interface module or separately as a console version on the workstation or cluster.

  • General mesh formulation (NNC, LGR and coarsen, faults, pinchouts, etc.), corner point, unstructured grids.
  • Dual porosity, dual permeability.
  • API tracking, gravity drainage, nanopolymer flooding, desalination.
  • Tracer analysis, waterflood optimization, aquifers, waters with different salinities.
  • Polymers, surfactants, ASP injection, Bright Water polymers.
  • Hysteresis, diffusion, adsorption, desorption.
  • Hydraulic fractures.
  • Multi-segment wells, group controls, aquifers including constant flux, Fetkovich, Carter-Tracy, numerical extended surface network option.
  • Temperature extension of black oil to model cold water injection.
  • D-factor, GPP controls, VFP lifting tables and correlation functions, ACTIONS, auto-drilling, support of user defined variables, arrays, extended arithmetics.
  • Fully implicit and adaptive implicit algorithms.
  • Reservoir coupling.
  • And other options are available.

Parallel calculation is performed automatically on all available cores of the workstation or cluster nodes.

This module can be integrated with the third-party software: MEPO, PetrelRE plugin, GAP, RESOLVE and other.
