This course gives an introduction to how mathematical models and computational methods can be used to describe flow processes taking place in reservoirs and wells. The student will get an introduction to how such models can be solved by analytical and numerical techniques. Models in general are very much used in the petroleum industry.

Learning outcome

  • Have knowledge about standard numerical techniques that can be used to study petroleum related models •
  • Be able to formulate central (partial and ordinary) differential equations relevant for porous media and well flow, transient as well as stationary models. Know related closure laws and correlations that are involved in such models.
  • Be able to formulate discretizations of such mathematical models and assess properties like stability and accuracy.
  • Be trained in implementing (in matlab) such numerical methods
  • Know specific applications of the models that are presented.
  • Have a general understanding about the role played by mathematical models and computational methods as a tool in petroleum related operations.
