Reservoir Simulation News
Study Compares Underground Hydrogen Storage Sites
Several options exist for large-scale hydrogen underground storage: lined caverns, salt domes, saline aquifers, and depleted oil/gas reservoirs. In this paper, a commercial reservoir simulator was used to model cyclic injection/withdrawal from saline aquifers and depleted oil/gas reservoirs. The results revealed the need to contain the stored volume with an integrated approach to site selection, well locations, and operation.
Multivariate Characterization, Modeling of Paleo Zone Improves History Matching
The authors of this paper present an approach integrating characterization of paleo zones, parameterization of paleo-zone conductivity, and application of flow profiles in a history-matching study of a dual-porosity/dual-permeability model.
Reservoir Simulation Model Predicts EOR Performance on Alaska’s North Slope
The authors of this paper develop a robust history-matched reservoir simulation model capable of predicting polymerflooding performance in the first such pilot to enhance heavy oil recovery on Alaska’s North Slope.
One of the more common characteristics of heavy oil reservoirs is a low primary recovery factor, which is mainly because of unfavorable mobility ratios between oil and water, negligible solution drives, and faster decline of reservoir pressures because of relatively low oil compressibility. Most of the technologies that apply to heavy oil reservoirs need to address the mobility ratio or viscous forces before any flooding.
Multiwell-Pressure History Matching in Delaware Play Helps Optimize Fracturing
The authors of this paper define a work flow that constrains solutions that match models and field observations and obtains a more-representative model for forecasting and optimizing fracture behavior.
