Rubis Modeling and Problem Solving
- Highly practical with hands-on model building from day 1
- No previous or specialist simulation experience required
- Immediate return on investment with attendees able to build history matched models, run what-if? scenarios, and forecast upon completion of the course
Rubis sits between single tank material balance and
a multi-million-cell simulator, not replacing them but
doing much of the work they can do, easier, faster and
in concert with KAPPA-Workstation. This is used to build a
predictive model ‘bottom up’.
This course will help reservoir and production
engineers, geologists and well technologists build
reservoir or sector models with no previous experience.
They can then forecast, perform what-ifs? and foresee
future intervention opportunities and risks with build
and run times in minutes instead of days.
Pre-requisites to attend the course
No prior simulation knowledge is required. Previous
experience in using KAPPA-Workstation will be of benefit
although not strictly required. When understanding the
complementary nature of the simulation model and
the PA and PTA analysis, prior experience of these
methodologies would be an advantage. The theory
of numerical simulation, transient and production
analysis are NOT covered in this course. If you wish
to discuss this please contact email@example.com
and one of our trainers will talk it through with you
offering pre-course reading />worked examples to give
you a head start if needed.
This is NOT a course on the mathematics and theory of numerical
simulation. The entire emphasis is on the building of the physical
problem and application to various scenarios.
Rubis mechanics and model building
Introduction to Rubis and its role in KAPPA-Workstation compared to
transient and production analysis leading to flexible upscaling from
the wellbore to the full field. Building a simple model: reservoir
structure, rock and fluid properties and well description. Defining
multiple regions with different initial PVT states. Importing and
loading data from various sources including Geomodelers.
Running the model
Automatic grid building, run settings, initialization, simulation,
displays, re-runs, what-ifs? and reporting.
Specific problem solving
Recovery comparisons for different field scenarios and well
placements. Adapting the grid to model coning effects. Modeling
and adjusting the aquifer model and strength. Modeling multiple and
connected gas tanks.
Practical integration with PTA and PA
Initializing a Rubis case from production analysis (Topaze) and
returning this to the production analysis. Initializing a Rubis case
from pressure transient analysis (Saphir). Using a sector of a
Rubis case to analyze a build-up in Saphir.
Full Field Case History
The course culminates in the attendees building a full-field history
matched model leading to production optimization, forecast of
primary recovery and scenarios for secondary recovery.
