Rubis Modeling and Problem Solving

In response to the current situation, and as a possible alternative to that next box set, KAPPA is offering a series of online short courses to provide you the opportunity to learn something new in a small, lively, interactive group of like- minded engineers.

You will have access, before and after the session, to the suite of software required for the learning.

As the delivery is online, the format is a series of short interactive live sessions of show and tell followed by guided examples worked by the attendees with online real-time assistance from the tutor.

We have chosen content that is very specific to industry issues at the moment.

We cover only essential theory but provide access to resources for more in depth learning as required.

Places are limited and these courses are, to support people in these difficult times, offered at no charge.

We hope you enjoy learning something new!

Rubis modeling and problem solving short courses

Based on feedback from our clients, a potpourri of cases covering typical real-world issues and challenges will be discussed and taught. These include but are not limited to:

  • Integrated multiphase compositional modeling
  • Sector tuning workflow using GRDECL™ (new in KWv5.30)
  • Coal Seam Gas (CSG)
  • Gas coning – water cusping modeling
  • Troubleshooting tips in numerical modeling
  • Extended Saphir options for PTA practitioners
  • Modeling multilateral and complex wells
  • Integrated multilayer analysis workflow using PLT
  • Modeling ICDs
  • EOS modeling (Immiscible gas displacement)
  • Aquifer connections in highly dipping reservoirs
  • Software coverage includes Saphir (S), Topaze (T), Rubis (R)

Pre-Requisites to attend the course

Although very beneficial, no prior knowledge of KAPPA software is required. The software, for individual, personal non-commercial use, will be provided before the course.

About the Course

A tool for our times, Rubis is a multipurpose numerical modeling tool that can be used standalone or seamlessly in combination with other KAPPA modules. The interface allows for a rapid build based on geometry with the unstructured grid being filled automatically dependent on the type of problem to be solved. The engineer can therefore concentrate on the problem, running multiple scenarios to arrive at forecasts, reserves, investigation of possible intervention opportunities and what if’s in a very short time frame without worrying about the mechanics of 'driving' a complex simulator.

This is not a simulation theory course.


All courses are conducted in English unless otherwise notified.
