Advanced Petroleum Reservoir Simulation

File Size: 8.24 Mb

Petroleum is still the world's most important source of energy and reservoir performance and petroleum recovery are often based on assumptions that bear little relationship to reality. Not all equations written on paper are correct and are only dependent on the assumptions used. In reservoir simulation, the principle of garbage in and garbage out is well known leading to systematic and large
errors in the assessment of reservoir performance. This book presents the shortcomings and assumptions of previous methods. It then outlines the need for a new mathematical approach that eliminates most of the shortcomings and spurious assumptions of the conventional approach. The volume will provide the working engineer or graduate student with a new, more accurate, and more efficient model for a very important aspect of petroleum engineering: reservoir simulation leading to prediction of reservoir behavior.

Reservoir simulation studies are very subjective and vary from simulator to simulator. Currently available simulators only address a very limited range of solutions for a particular reservoir engineering problem. While benchmarking has helped accept differences in predicting petroleum reservoir performance, there has been no scientific explanation behind the variability that has puzzled scientists and engineers. For a modeling process to be accurate, the input data have to be accurate for the simulation results to be acceptable. The requirements are that various sources of errors must be recognized and data integrity must be preserved.
