|Paradigm® SKUA® delivers simulation-ready reservoir models that maintain the integrity of the underlying geology by enabling the preservation of all identified faults and stratigraphic constraints, while limiting numerical errors during flow simulation by constructing optimal grids with orthogonal cell faces.|
Scenario comparisons with field data
Upscaling petrophysical properties from a fine-scale reservoir model to a flow simulation model, typically at a coarser resolution, can be a slow and tedious process. With its unique 3D approach, SKUA facilitates accurate and fast upscaling operations.
Unlike competitive offerings that can only construct pillar grids which may not accurately reflect the reservoir geometry and may lead to numerical errors in flow simulation, reservoir grids created using SKUA maintain the integrity of the geology, limit numerical errors in flow simulators by preserving cell orthogonality, and provide stair-step grids where necessary (as shown in the figure on the right).
