Reservoir Simulations

The extraction of oil and gas is a complex activity, which demands a lot of investment. In order to save time and resources, tests are applied, based on mathematical analysis using the latest software, indicating the viability and the success of the operation that will be carried out. Hence, it is necessary to implement the modeling and simulation stages.  

The tool used to forecast the behavior of oil and gas reservoirs is a simulation created with the use of mathematical modeling, which incorporates data from different fields related to exploration and production activities of an accumulation of hydrocarbons. This information includes data on geology, geophysics, rock and fluid properties, well locations, elevation methods, and operating conditions for the production facilities.

The simulation allows us to study and assess the performance of a reservoir over time, under the most diverse conditions and situations in a cost effective manner. The usual simulations are:

  • Economic and profit viability assessment of a project for the development of an accumulation of hydrocarbons;
  • Optimization of the localization and quantity of wells for the production of a field;
  • Calculation of the field’s production potential and its behavior over time;  
  • Selection of the best secondary recovery method and evaluation of its necessity;
  • Sensitivity study of the results obtained to the input parameters of the model;
  • Calculation of the recovery method;
  • Resource and reserve estimates.
