Numerical simulation of reservoir processes

Numerical simulation of reservoir processes

Modelling and simulation of the physical phenomena involved during flow in porous media is essential for the understanding of reservoir processes. A number of methods and tools are used for this purpose, varying from commercial reservoir simulators to specially developed and dedicated simulators. The main emphasis is on methods for improved oil recovery and aquifer deposition of CO2. SINTEF Petroleum Research has experience and competence within:
  • Development of simulation models.
  • Single- and multi phase upscaling.
  • Full field development strategies.
  • History matching.
  • Production strategies
  • Simulation of EOR measures
  • CO2-EOR and CO2 storage
