Petroleum reservoir simulation using super element method | #Geology #GeologyPage

The study conducted by researches of Kazan Federal University describes the theoretical framework and results of using a rapid three-dimensional super element model of oil field development.

Simulation of oil field development is traditionally performed using full-scale filtration models (Roxar Tempest More, S?hlumberger Eclipse, etc.) on ?omputational grids with a cell size of approximately several tens of meters horizontally and tens of centimeters vertically.
