Suite VIP® Reservoir Simulation Suite
Description | Features | System Requirements

Reservoir simulation technology suite VIP®, Landmark's reservoir simulation technology suite, provides complete pre-processing, simulation and post-processing workflows to engineers and asset teams. The VIP Windows-based interface, database design and integrated workflows dramatically improve the efficiency of all simulation tasks, from initial data assembly, job design and submittal, through simulation and production prediction. Building on its strength as a full-physics simulator, Windows-based tools make it much easier to perform simulation and analysis in the VIP suite. VIP tools allows the entire asset team to quickly leverage reservoir simulation results to improve well planning and reservoir management decisions. Benefits Simulation for the entire asset team The easy-to-use native Windows workflows leverage the OpenWorks® database. As a result, the entire asset team can access valuable information from fluid flow simulation, not just the specialists. Efficient simulation workflow VIP software provides workflow integration across pre-processing, simulation and analysis modules. This allows asset teams to quickly model and analyze the results of numerous reservoir types and production mechanisms. Integration with the OpenWorks database permits unprecedented access to a wide range of geological, well trace, well perforation and well timing data needed to support simulation workflows. Customizable simulation technology The VIP simulation suite is flexible and adaptable to your reservoir management workflow. Features Simplified Windows-based user interface VIP Data Studio provides an easy-to-use Windows interface that enables rapid preparation of all reservoir, well, and fluid/pressure data for flow simulation. This easy-to-use module still allows the use of keywords if the user prefers. Parallel and serial job management VIP takes full advantage of today’s computer processing power with its new and improved Job Submittal module. VIP’s Job Submittal module supports both serial and parallel job management across multiple CPUs and platforms. Users also have options to submit jobs in batch. Rapid data analysis VIP introduces SimResults, a new module providing post-processing capabilities in a Windows format. Based upon vector analysis (line plotting), users can quickly analyze the results of
