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 2021.3 delivers many key features in performance, physics, field management, usability, and more. These features include the first full-GPU implementation of INTERSECT high-resolution reservoir simulator for black-oil simulation, improved out-of-box performance for multiscale sequential fully implicit, modeling of solid phase in compositional models to support CO2 storage workflows and others, a new template for managing asset operational logic inside Field Management, and several usability enhancements including the migrator.
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.
