Pressure and Tracers
Pressure and Tracers generates a pressure and velocity field from any volume
(structured or unstructured mesh) with sources and sinks (typically injector and
production wells). Dope fluids with any number of numerical tracers to track the
movement of the fluids. Model tracer trajectories in reservoirs in which upscaling (as required by traditional reservoir simulators) or ray tracing is inappropriate.
Pressure and Tracers Applications
Evaluate dynamic connectivity of geostatistically-generated reservoir models.
Identify pressure compartmentalization both within hydrocarbon accumulations and associated aquifers for field development planning.
- Pressure seeding
Seed a volume- or mesh-based model with known pressure (or overpressure) values and run an unsteady state pressure solve; the system is then allowed to “relax” and the pressure field will adjust according to the permeability fabric.
Pre-screen reservoir models prior to full production simulation.
