About The Course
Reservoir simulation has become a necessary tool for the petroleum engineers, geologists, and subsurface modelers to understand the recovery of hydrocarbon (or other fluids) in an efficient manner. With the advances in computing capabilities and the numerical methods, the complex geological systems and mixtures of fluids can be tracked and visualized using the scientific computations. Insights from these simulations are expected to help in managing the reservoir assets and making reliable predictions about production rates. In this course the fundamental governing equations as well as the numerical techniques to discretize them will be covered. Simple linear algebra solvers will also be presented to enable building a simulator that can provide the hands-on implementation of ideas in reservoir management. The students from petroleum, chemical, mechanical and civil engineering, and industry personnels working in petroleum sectors are expected to greatly benifit from this course. The course will be offered jointly by Prof. Mayank Tyagi of department of Petroleum Engineering, Lousiana State University, USA and Prof. Anugrah Singh of department of Chemical Engineering, IIT Guwahati, India
