SPE Presentation: PetroCup FDP Simulator

Topic:  SPE Presentation: PetroCup FDP Simulator

PetroCup is a Training and Testing facility for surface and subsurface petroleum facilities management, which tries to reproduce the realistic behavior of a reservoir system in response to human activity. It can be run as an online competition between different asset teams for the same field asset.

PetroCup has a very simple user-friendly web interface that allows petroleum engineers to perform routine activities (drilling, complex workovers, varying pump settings, well testing, logging...) with an intuitive button-click.

The PolyPlan simulator used is capable of modeling geological /dynamic flow models, wellbore flow model, surface and subsurface infrastructure, popular OH and CH sensors and reproducing a very realistic response to typical field operational activities.

In this way, several years of field development can be simulated in just a few days and redevelopment actions can be translated into Net Present Value, to identify the best future development plan for a field.

It helps to develop and improve practical skills in asset management and associated disciplines such as geology, petrophysics, flow simulations, production technology, well testing, production logging, surface and subsurface facilities and petroleum economics.
