What is Simulation
Literal Meaning:
appearance of , without
It may be defined as theart of designing an artificial system close to areal system-Experimentation of modeling is simulation.
Reservoir simulation is a tool that allows the petroleum engineer togain greater insight into the mechanism of petroleum recoverythat isotherwise possible. It can, if properly used, be one of the most valuabletool.
It is the only means togive better understanding of the operatingcharacteristics and engineering aspectsof the oil and gas productionsfrom a reservoir.
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
alternatively examined
. 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.
