discretized into 300 tetrahedrals. Figures 4.12 and 4.13 present the cumulative oil
production curve for this case study. The oil production rate plots are shown in
Figures 4.14 and 4.15. Water cut plots are shown in Figures 4.16 and 4.17. Gas
to oil ratios are presented in Figures 4.18 and 4.19.
It should be emphasized that these are fundamentally very different simulators.
The finite-element simulator has been developed primarily for representing com-
plex domains including faulted and fractured systems. It is also appropriate for
modeling complex well systems (multilaterals, fish-bones, etc.) The well models
for UFES were developed at the University of Utah. Considering the funda-
mentally different discretization, and different well models, the match between
the three-phase UFES and Eclipse is excellent. A new three-dimensional, three-
phase, finite-element simulator is available for use. We would like to study the
application of the model to complex geologic systems.
Here’s what’s next.
