The INTERSECT high-resolution 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 2022.1 delivers many key features in performance, physics, CO2 storage capabilities, field management, usability, and more. These features include performance improvements in GPU and Multiscale, a new water weakening rock compaction model, extensions to solid and diffusion capabilities targeting CO2 storage applications, a utility to convert the input formats to a comma separated variables (CSV) representation, and templates for simplified reporting, among many other improvements.
Physics and CO2 Storage
The INTERSECT simulator brings value to reservoir engineers performing numerical simulation using high-resolution models and complex field operating conditions. The INTERSECT simulator also brings 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 simulator.
