Webinar: Advancements in Numerical Performance & Simulation Speed-up

The presentation discusses how to significantly decrease run-times for your large, multi-well simulations through advanced techniques using CMG software.

Abstract

In reservoir simulation, multi-well and multi-pad models are becoming a necessity in order to completely understand well interactions and the impact of operational and geological uncertainty. Until recently, running these extremely large multi-wells, multi-million grid cell models was mostly impractical due to the long run time associated with the limitations of computer hardware and simulation technology. Despite considerable advances in computational power, speeding up reservoir modelling calculations and improving numerical performance continues to be a challenge. This webinar will review advancements in numerical simulation performance and provide an overview of new and existing features in CMG's software. Topics will include the application of numerical methods control, parallel processing, and dynamic gridding to enhance simulation performance and improve the accuracy of simulation results.

The following main points were covered:

  • Significant advancements in numerical simulation performance
  • Application of numerical methods control, parallel processing, and dynamic gridding
  • New and existing numerical tuning features in CMG's software
