SKUA-GOCAD - Modeling Reservoir Architecture using SKUA

This course teaches students how to use SKUA’s unique technology to create geologically accurate structural models, geologic grids and flow simulation grids, regardless of the structural complexity of the reservoir. 

This course covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to SKUA technology
  • Defining the geologic information for reservoir modeling
  • Building a 3D structural model
  • Building a geologic grid architecture
  • Building a flow simulation grid architecture

3 days
