WORKSTATIONS CUT COSTS AND BOOST PRODUCTIVITY OF RESERVOIR SIMULATIONS

Steven Smith Oxy USA Inc. Tulsa After decentralizing an exploration and production operation, a switch from mainframe computers to workstations decreased computing cost and increased capabilities for reservoir simulations In 1989, spurred by a major reorganization and the need to reduce reservoir simulation costs, Oxy USA Inc. began evaluating new technical computing strategies. At that time, Oxy ran smaller simulations during the day on a dedicated IBM ES/3081 mainframe at the Tulsa
