Oil reservoir simulation package


  • Anonymous


The Department of Energy has announced another computer software package available free to oil field operators. The program enables a user to predict possible oil production based on length and location of the wellbore and can simulate expected performance of multiple horizontal or slanted wells in any geometric combination.

The new package is for small independent producers with little computer programming capability. The intent is to help them evaluate potential for boosting production by drilling horizontal or slanted wells instead of the more conventional vertical well.
