Designed to introduce advanced inflow modelling concepts to petroleum and reservoir engineers. REVEAL, like the whole IPM suite, has been created to integrate those disciplines usually isolated by separate tools, in order to better understand the field.
About the Course
REVEAL, like the whole IPM suite, has been created to integrate those disciplines usually isolated by separate tools, in order to better understand the field.
REVEAL allows integration at the reservoir level.
REVEAL, enables users to bridge the gap between numerical simulation studies and specialist reservoir studies.
The following specialised reservoir studies can be carried out with REVEAL:
- Thermal and mobility studies to assess well injectivity and productivity
- Production chemistry studies - scaling and souring
- Sanding and solids deposition and transport - wax and asphaltenes
- Thermal and hydraulic fracturing
- Enhanced oil recovery methods - steam and gel injection.
The objective of the course is to introduce advanced inflow modelling concepts to petroleum and reservoir engineers. Effects of temperature on inflow performance, with investigations on physical phenomena such as thermal fracturing will be considered, along with modelling of tight gas and tight oil wells.
