Upscaling/Multiscale/Reduced-Order Modeling

The geological complexity of a reservoir combined with complex flow behavior lead to large discrete models. Simulation of such models is very time consuming. Techniques such as upscaling, multiscale modeling, and reduced order modeling can provide an approximation of the reservoir model adequate for reservoir management and optimization. We are developing methods for upscaling of complex physical problems such as gas and steam injection.
