OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW

Hydrocarbon reservoirs usually have very complicated nature due to the different geological processes involved in their formation. Hence, complex heterogeneity can be observed at a multi-scale, which makes field development challenging. Proper development of these reservoirs requires understanding their static as well as dynamic properties. 3D reservoir models are usually utilized to mimic the reservoir with its heterogeneity, history match field performance, predict future performance, and optimize the recovery. This area involves reservoir static modeling (porosity, permeability, and saturation predictions) as well as dynamic modeling related issues (flow functions of relative permeability and capillary pressure). Topics related to formulation and discretization techniques, high performance computing, algorithms, methods for complex subsurface Multiphysics, integration and coupling of models, advances in modeling complex physical processes, upscaling, uncertainty quantification, and optimization methods are also included.
