Introduction to tNavigator

Reservoir engineers, geoscientists and other specialists who are interested in learning tNavigator.

Reservoir engineering background.

2 days.

Course content:

  • Overview of tNavigator: parallel interactive hydrodynamic simulator.
  • Graphical User Interface: 2D and 3D maps, graphs, buttons, settings, templates, bubble maps, cross-plots, histograms, well profiles.
  • History Matching tools.
  • Black-oil, compositional, thermal models.
  • Job Queue. Multiple model versions.
  • Field development planning – vertical and horizontal wells, well patterns.
  • Waterflood optimization: streamlines, tracers, drainage tables and graphs, aquifers.
  • Sector modelling: automatic Split and Merge workflow.
  • Import, export data and reports. Results types, binary files, copying data for blocks, graphs, export of static and dynamic properties, loading measured data (BHP, RFT/MDT, LAS files and other).
  • EOR methods in tNavigator: alkalines, surfactants, polymers.
  • Hydraulic fractures.
  • Schedule update. Loading well data: trajectories, events, groups, history tables.
  • Advanced user map calculator: build any maps and filters to analyze data. Editing permeability, transmissibility multipliers, building in GUI any property map. Smoothing and interpolation.
  • Correlations for RP, PVT, lifting tables available.
  • Surface network.
  • How to tune solver and timestep controls – description of tNavigator special calculation tuning settings, used to optimize model performance and calculation time.
  • Assisted History Matching module usage example (can be included to this training on request).
  • Model Designer (pre-processor) module usage example (can be included to this training on request).
