... the process inefficient and manpower intensive. As personal computers became more popular, much of the process was ported to spreadsheets. The analysis process consisted of downloading data from mainframe databases into a text format that was read into the spreadsheets. Engineers manipulated and modified...

Paper Number: SPE-22308-MS
... Abstract Within less than a generation, dramatic changes in the computing needs of petroleum engineering graduates have occurred. Slide rule techniques gave way to hand calculators, which, in turn, has given way to solving problems using personal computers. The rapid change in technology has...

.... However, the current trend of 32-bit microprocessors being used in the main-stream Personal Computers(PC) opens a new horizon for reservoir simulation applications. This paper examines the feasibility of a fully implicit black-oil simulator run on these PCs. The simulator uses a general black-oil...

... ABSTRACT Hand held remote entry units were tested in three non-automated oil fields. The units were used daily by gaugers to store routine operating information and then to upload that information to the corporate mainframe computer via a personal computer. The test resulted in reduced manpower...
