This paper discusses the role reservoir simulators play in formulating initial development plans, history matching and optimising future production and in planning and designing enhanced oil recovery projects. The Hibernia Field in Canada and the Hassi R'Mel in Algeria illustrate how simulation can be used to assist in initial reservoir development. The Lookout Butte Rundle (Alberta) and others are cited to exemplify optimisation of future production plans with the aid of simulation. Finally, applications to several reported EOR projects are briefly discussed with major emphasis concentrating on the Bati Raman Field in Turkey.
