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 2021.2 delivers many key features in innovation, field management, usability, physics and fidelity. These features include the extension of the machine learning critical temperature calculation in the simulator to user defined external feeds, use of expressions in real data type fields in certain Field Management nodes, improvements for steam rate and steam trap well control modes for thermal recovery, enhanced support to history matching OBSH workflows, improvements to the construction of coarsened Multiscale grids, among others. The migrator was also improved to support additional separator and surface equations of state related ECLIPSE 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.
