Advanced reservoir simulation, theory and practical work.

Learning outcome

After completing the course the student will be able to:
  • understand the construction of a standard simulator for reservoir fluid multiphase flow
  • use an advanced reservoir simulatorcommon to the industry
  • formulate differential equations, discretize them and linearize them to be solved in a programming software for a relatively simple multiphase flow problem

Contents

Differential equations for mass conservation, Black Oil and compositional models. Discretization, finite differences. Linearization, Newton's method. IMPES, AIM and implicit solution. Solution of linear equations, direct and iterative methods. Use of a simulator for solving reservoir technical problems.

Required prerequisite knowledge

None.

Recommended prerequisites

PET500, PET510, PET560, PET565

Exam

Weight Duration Mark Supporting materials
Continous assessment1/1 A - F
Continuous assessment in form of written tests and project assignments which all affect the grade: ~3 tests and ~4 projects.
The tests count equally and the projects count equally. The grade is evaluated 50/50 based on tests and projects.
The students must pass all project assignments and obtain an average of at least 40 % on the theory tests to pass the course. If students fail or want to improve their grade, they must take the entire course again the next year.

Coursework requirements

Continuous assessment in form of written tests and project assignments which all affect the grade: 3 tests and 4 projects.
The three tests count 50 % (15+15+20) of the grade and the projects count 50 % (10+10+10+20) where the fourth project is more comprehensive than the others and last through the semester.
The students must pass all project assignments and obtain an average of at least 40 % on the theory tests to pass the course.

Open to

Master students associated with energy and petroleum technology studies, primarily with specialization in reservoir technology. If more than 35 students register, reservoir students will be prioritized, then petroleum, then based on grades.
