Open Porous Media (OPM)

Open Porous Media (OPM)

The Open Porous Media (OPM) initiative provides open-source software for simulation, upscaling and visualization of porous media processes, in particular subsurface reservoirs.

The OPM software has been developed in collaboration with Statoil, IRIS, Ceetron Solutions and international partners aiming to provide a software platform that is both industrially useful as well as a good basis for advanced research. The programs provided include Flow, a reservoir simulator using the fully implicit black-oil formulation, several programs for upscaling of petrophysical and fluid properties, and ResInsight, a reservoir visualization tool.

For more information, see the OPM web site.
