Reservoir modeling and simulation in today's high-performance computing environments

05/17/2004
Modeling the earth's subsurface and predicting reservoir flow have always been limited by the supporting hardware and software technology. Over the last decade, significant progress has been made in addressable memory and processor speed; however, the size of models geologists and reservoir engineers require continues to push the capabilities of the available hardware/software infrastructure. The details geologists require to accurately represent subsurface heterogeneity often results in models becoming physically very large, larger than what could reasonably be used in a 20-30 year simulation of reservoir performance.Because most major field development decisions are based on reservo...
