Reservoir simulation plays a key part in field development planning, and for an industry that is moving towards more complex projects, a simulation tool which uses the latest hardware and software technology is required. The purpose of this evening’s presentation is to offer a brief introduction to reservoir simulation and to discuss the key challenges faced during field development planning. Mike will provide an overview of reservoir simulation to date, and discuss how uncertainty is used in reservoir simulation to maximize revenue and reduce risk when making key decisions. He will present recent case study examples and offer his insight into the future of reservoir engineering using modern 21st century hardware to utilize parallel simulation software.If


Mike Smith is part of a world class team developing Rock Flow Dynamic’s software package tNavigator®, an established complete subsurface platform changing the way the petroleum industry can analyse data and make decisions for their Oil and Gas assets. Mike graduated from the University of Aberdeen, with a MSc in Reservoir Engineering and BSs Honours in Geology and Petroleum Geology. His educational background and enthusiasm for the field is championing RFD’s efforts to bridge the gap between geoscience and reservoir engineering.
