Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will be introduced to reservoir simulation. They will be able to propose a model and conduct a simulation, based on available data on specific problems.

Teaching methods



Students will be introduced to the production process and its physical backround. They will be enabled to describe the process mathematically and apply it on a range geological backrounds. We will broaden the knowledge of numerical methods for simulation of petroleum engineering problems.
