Petroleum Reservoir Simulation by Abou Kassem

Reservoir simulation in the oil industry has become the standard for solving reservoir engineering problems. Simulators for various recovery processes have been developed and continue to be developed for new oil recovery processes. Reservoir simulation is the art of combining physics, mathematics, reservoir engineering, and computer programming to develop a tool for predicting hydrocarbon reservoir performance under various operating strategies. Figure 1-1 depicts the major steps involved in the development of a reservoir simulator: formulation, discretization, well representation, linearization, solution, and validation (Odeh, 1982). In this figure, formulation outlines the basic assumptions inherent to the simulator, states these assumptions in precise mathematical terms, and applies them to a control volume in the reservoir. The result of this step is a set of coupled, nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) that describes fluid flow through porous media.
