Session 1: Data Analytics

Probabilistic and robust data-driven methods promise to enable practical prediction and optimization of large-scale energy operations. The development of computationally efficient hybrid approaches that combine models of the underlying physics with data-driven techniques (e.g. reduced order modeling) is essential to delivering good on this promise. The validation of the predictive power and efficacy of such models can pave the path towards ubiquitous adoption.

Session 3: High-Performance Computing

Recent advances in modern parallel computing architectures have motivated new strategies for reservoir simulation and also led to revivals of some older ideas. The talks in this session cover a wide variety of High-Performance Computing topics, ranging from CPU to GPU to Cloud in hardware architectures, from Multiscale solver to AI-based adaptive preconditioning to dynamic mesh and load balance in algorithms.

Session 5: Integrated Modeling and Case Studies I

Reservoir simulation often needs to be tailored to specific applications to better represent the underlying physical processes. Papers in this session provide case studies of integrating reservoir simulation with geo-mechanics, flows in multi-segment wells, high-order methods for various modeling purposes, as well as insight into the development of complex simulation systems.

Session 6: Geomechanics and Unconventional Resources I

Geomechanics plays an important role on the economical exploitation of unconventional reservoirs due to the complex interaction between mechanical and flow mechanisms arising from natural and induced fractures, among other phenomena. This session will present some of the latest advances in modeling and simulation of geomechanics and its coupling to the fluid-flow processes with specific applications to hydraulic fracturing, compaction and subsidence.

Session 7: Forecasting, Optimization and Calibration

Models are built to make predictions and reservoir engineers want to add value to projects by optimizing forecasts with respect to problem controllable options, e.g. how many injection/production wells and where to drill them? In this session, papers will focus on robust optimization of well controls, type and trajectory, and on reservoir management with multi-objective type optimization for chemical EOR projects. Robustness of forecast may benefit from history matching, e.g. with cross-well electromagnetic data.

Session 8: Complex Processes I

Increasing energy demand has led to the development of increasingly complex recovery processes. Papers in this session are focused on models for representing those processes in our reservoir simulators and the solutions to the numerical challenges that arise when modeling processes such as foams, thermal EOR, compositional and reactive transport.
