Applied Reservoir Simulation

Mr. Hammouda is a Professional Engineer and member of APEGA in Calgary, Canada
(5 days) – Date: May 10-14, Oct. 4-8, 2021

Course Objective:

This course explains classic reservoir analysis, simulation overview, and the benefits of reservoir simulation. The course is focusing on the practical aspects of reservoir simulation.  Data requirements and well calculations are also topics that will be covered during the course. The course will explain the selection of gridding, numerical dispersion, and grid scaleup. The course includes a variety of examples and gives hands-on simulation practices.
