Fast Simulation Tools for Flow in Heterogeneous Porous Media
Modern methods for 3D geological modeling and reservoir characterization are leading industry to routinely build very large and detailed reservoir models. Such models pose a serious computational challenge to numerical reservoir simulators. Indeed, there is a steadily increasing gap between the level of detail seen in industrial geomodels and the capabilities of current flow simulators. In this talk, we will discuss new (multiscale) simulator technology that has been developed at SINTEF over the last 7-8 years with the purpose of reducing the turn-over time from geological modeling to simulation, but also bring simulation to new work processes that require fast computation of flow responses.
