Reservoir Simulation- Why?
Need/ Benefit of Simulation
An engineer can have only a single opportunity to produce thereservoir; any mistake made in the process will be aroundforever. But, the
simulation study can be made several times
. As an e.g. experimentation onaeroplane can be done without passengers but not with anypassenger.
Many complex systems were previously impossible to handle inreality, modern simulation process can solve without unduedifficulty.
The mechanics of simulation have compiled all the data of reservoir into one compact data base.
Presence of common ground between companies and regulatorybodies and other agencies which deal with petroleum resources.
