30 Reservoir Simulation and Characterization

Tuesday, 17 October
Room 217 B
Technical Session
Reservoir simulation is a powerful technique for performance prediction and plays an essential role in characterizing fluid flow in the reservoir. This session covers recent advances in reservoir simulation, AI-based modeling, and fluid flow characterization. It also discusses applications of these techniques in complex reservoirs related to model calibration, novel algorithmic developments, phase behavior and CO2 flooding.
