EDFM Case Studies
SimTech AHM technology is now available and has been implemented in real field applications for assessing operators about future improved fracture designs and even new well placement optimization.
Complex Fractured reservoir simulation solutions with EDFM method
Our team has recently developed and proven the best fracture modeling tool for simulating any and all types of fractures (hydraulic and natural) to enhance your existing reservoir models to drastically improve predictability and optimization/development strategies for both primary and enhanced oil recovery applications. Having this capability is critical because fractures can dominate the results seen in the field. This system can be swiftly integrated into existing frameworks for all reservoirs to perform more predictive sensitivity analyses, more representative history matching, and accurate production forecasting. This physics backed system essentially incorporates any fracture framework (using real field data or understandings) and is called the Embedded Discrete Fracture Model (EDFM).
Arming at solve the huge uncertainties in unconventional hydraulic fracture model, a new statistical method in combination with Monte Carlo sampling and our unique EDFM processor is developed to account for uncertainties in reservoir, fluid, well, and fracture properties. With our powerful EDFM processor, our workflow is able to perform a large numbers of complex fractured reservoir simulations swiftly. Our smart algorithm considering the important uncertain parameters with reasonable ranges using statistic method, which leads a much less simulation and quicker matching process. This technology is a practical solution to verify HF model.
