Robust, reliable reference simulator
The ECLIPSE industry-reference simulator offers the industry’s most complete and robust set of numerical solutions for fast and accurate prediction of dynamic behavior for all types of reservoirs and development schemes. The ECLIPSE simulator has been the benchmark for commercial reservoir simulation for more than 25 years thanks to its extensive capabilities, robustness, speed, parallel scalability, and unmatched platform coverage.
Unrivaled depth and breadth of functionality
With over 30 years of continuous development and innovation, the ECLIPSE simulator is the most feature-rich and comprehensive reservoir simulator on the market—covering the entire spectrum of reservoir models, including black oil, compositional, thermal finite-volume, and streamline simulation. By choosing from a wide range of add-on options—such as local grid refinements, coalbed methane, gas field operations, advanced wells, reservoir coupling, and surface networks—simulator capabilities can be tailored to meet your needs, enhancing your reservoir modeling capabilities.
Extensive expertise and user base
Used at over 800 sites in 70 countries, the ECLIPSE simulator draws upon an unrivalled level of reservoir engineering expertise across the entire industry. As well as being the de facto simulation standard in the petroleum industry, the ECLIPSE simulator is used extensively by academia, regulatory authorities, and petroleum financial planners. Evidenced by citations in over 1,500 SPE technical papers, the ECLIPSE simulator is widely acknowledged as the industry’s leading reservoir simulator.
Petrel reservoir engineering environment
The user environment for the ECLIPSE family of simulators is Petrel Reservoir Engineering, which integrates the static and dynamic modeling process into a seamless workflow. Data flows are transparent, with an easy-to-learn graphical user interface that supports simulation configuration and results visualization. The Petrel platform integrates data from multiple disciplines, allowing experts to combine their knowledge in a unified environment. It also supports extensive uncertainty and optimization workflows.
