    Reservoir Simulation Data Management

    Reservoir Simulation Data Management Eng.Ali Yahya Jirjees Salman Introduction Data from a wide variety of sources are required for reservoir simulation. Simulation itself produces large quantities of data. Yet, good data management practices for reservoir simulation data are typically neither well-understood nor widely investigated. Reservoir simulation is inherently a data-intensive process. It starts with geological models and their properties, and assignment of phase behavior or equation of state data, relative permeability and capillary pressure information and geo-mechanical data. It requires layout of the surface facility network, subsurface configuration of wells, their attributes, pressure and rate limits and other production and optimization constraints. Very often, production history information, hydraulics tables, completion…
