Web-based Reservoir Modeling


1. Accommodates distant collaborations among industry partners and academia.
2. Leverages information on active, updated public-domain petroleum databases.
3. Low cost - free access
4. Provides integrated reservoir analysis tools for the small independent oil and gas producer.


Reservoir modeling involves assimilation of multi-scale information and requires an interdisciplinary approach


Geo-Engineering Modeling is multi-scale, integrated activity conducted over often long development history of a petroleum province. Recognition of interdependency of scales of reservoir provides the perspectives and insights needed to refine and constrain reservoir models.
