Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)
Reservoir modeling and simulation play a pivotal role in the field of reservoir engineering, enabling efficient hydrocarbon recovery and reservoir management. This article provides an overview of the definition, significance, and evolution of reservoir modeling techniques, emphasizing the importance of accurate reservoir characterization. It explores different data acquisition methods, such as core analysis, well logging, seismic data, and production history, highlighting their integration for robust reservoir description. Mathematical modeling techniques for reservoir simulation, including single-phase and multi-phase flow models, along with numerical simulation methods such as finite difference, finite element, and finite volume, are discussed. The article also delves into uncertainty analysis, history matching, and the assimilation of field production data to improve model accuracy. Advanced techniques, emerging trends, and their applications, such as upscaling/downscaling methods, integrated reservoir modeling and optimization approaches, and the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, are presented. The inclusion of case studies showcases the practical implementation of reservoir modeling and simulation in various areas, such as field development planning, enhanced oil recovery, and reservoir management. Finally, the challenges associated with reservoir modeling and simulation techniques and future perspectives for advancements in the field are addressed.
