Model Designer

Model Designer (pre-processor) allows the user to create a dynamic model and perform local editing, updating and maintenance of the simulation model.

  • Loading grid in standard formats, loading RESCUE files.
  • Start from existing dynamic model. Property editing, PVT, RP, well production data update.
  • Relative permeabilities (Corey and LET correlation, import).
  • PVT and EOS: Integration with the PVT Designer.
  • VFP tables: Integration with the VFP Designer.
  • Rock properties.
  • Equilibrium and nonequilibrium initialization.
  • Property calculator, local grid editing, aquifers.
  • Load and edit well history and events in table form. Pre-defined rules for tables recalculation. Integration with data bases via Python scripts.
  • Development Strategy: well groups, limits and control modes, groups limits, economical limits and other rules for wells, well filters.
  • Field development planning, restart and forecast scenarios, handling of multiple simulation cases in one Model Designer project.
  • 2D and 3D visualization, histograms, crossplots, graphs.
  • Python based workflows.
  • All the calculations are accelerated with parallel algorithms run on all available cores of the hardware.

Integration. The combination of modules Geology Designer, Model Designer, PVT Designer, VFP Designer, Simulator (black-oil, compositional or thermal), Assisted History Matching and Uncertainty provides the capability to create static and dynamic models in one graphical interface, run simulations, analyze results and carry out assisted history matching and uncertainty analysis.

Model Designer for Unconventional Reservoirs

Model Designer enables users to design and simulate multi-stage hydraulic fracture configuration with virtually unlimited complexity.

  • Fractures with arbitrary geometry can be modelled with no restrictions on the number of fracture stages and fracture clusters; nor on the angles of fracture-to-fracture, fracture-to-well, fracture-to-grid relative orientations.
  • Various rock properties (porosity, permeability, net-to-gross ratio) and reservoir regions (saturation, rock compaction, PVT) can be initialized and changed in time via schedule section separately for fracture and non-fracture zones within stimulated rock volume (SRV).
  • Fractures and SRV zones are defined through one or several Templates with parameters included in the Assisted History Matching and Uncertainty Quantification workflow.
  • Multiple fractures can merge and split from each other. A new type of adaptive logarithmic LGRs can be used to ensure effective unstructured gridding around fracture paths.
  • Fracture properties for multiple wells can be input into the project via Fracture Table that enables handling large data arrays.
  • Incorporation of Frac Propagation results from third party software (GOHFER®, StimPlan, etc.).
  • Dual porosity/Dual Permeability, Coal Bed Methane and other options are available.
  • Assessment of the fracture parameters’ impact on production (uncertainty analysis via workflow).
