The INTERSECT reservoir simulator sets a new standard for reservoir simulation that goes beyond the capabilities offered by current generation simulators. The result is improved accuracy and efficiency in field development planning and risk mitigation—even for the most complex fields.
The INTERSECT simulator enables engineers to accurately and quickly model
Petrel Reservoir Engineering constitutes the user environment for all Schlumberger reservoir simulation solutions, and you can run the INTERSECT simulator from Petrel Reservoir Engineering.
The release of INTERSECT 2021.1 delivers many key features in innovation, field management, usability, physics and fidelity. These features include the first commercial release of machine learning in the simulator, enhanced ways to interact and utilize Field Management expressions, new fluid stream modeling controls, improvements to IX-ENS coupling and extended physics for heavy oil and coal. Usability continues to be a key focus, with the first release of a Field Management template, simple aliases for property identifiers, and more. Additional ECLIPSE keyword support is given to the migrator, with focus on surface equation of state keywords.
The INTERSECT simulator sets a new standard for reservoir simulation, bringing benefits to reservoir engineers performing numerical simulation using high-resolution models and complex field operating conditions. The INTERSECT simulator also brings value and benefits for production and completion engineers working with advanced completion simulations and complex hydraulic fracture scenarios. Reservoir geomechanics engineers also can use the INTERSECT simulator when dealing with cases like reservoir integrity analysis and permeability changes, which is possible through the integration of the INTERSECT simulator and VISAGE* finite-element geomechanics simulators.
