Work Package two: Reservoir-to-well connectivity

Key team members:

Team lead: Michael Byrne, Global Technical Head, Formation Damage at Lloyd’s Register Senergy. 

A Post Doc and a PhD student will be recruited to DTU Compute and supervised by Assoc. Prof. Allan Peter Engsig-Karup. The two will collaborate closely on the tasks related to reservoir-well interfacing and reduced order models, which will require expertise and know-how from DTU, LRC and Welltec.

Overview:

The goal is to achieve efficient and physically correct simulations of the in-and-out flow of the well. Due to the large differences in scales and physics, reservoir simulators currently fail to account for the near-well region and therefore require an interfacing method to a full CFD simulator.
