We apply Massively Parallel Interface for MPFA-O scheme with state-of-the-art Operator-Based Linearization (OBL) approach for multiphase flow in porous media. The implementation of MPFA-O scheme enhances the modelling capabilities for non-K-orthogonal mesh. A fully implicit scheme is applied to guarantee the stability of solutions when a mass...

The United Nations’ Paris Agreement forces nations and industries to transition from conventional hydrocarbon-based energy sources to more sustainable and less-emitting alternatives such as geothermal energy. Geothermal doublets are used to provide a source of green heat to greenhouses and residential buildings. In industry, reservoir simulators...

Accounting for poro-mechanical effects in full-field reservoir simulation studies and uncertainty quantification workflows using complex reservoir models is challenging, mainly because of the high computational cost. We hence introduce an alternative approach that couples hydrodynamics through existing flow diagnostics simulations with poro...

Foam injection is a promising means of reducing the relative mobility of gas, and hence improving the sweep efficiency of gas, in CO<sub>2</sub> and H<sub>2</sub> storage, soil-contaminant removal in aquifer remediation, enhanced oil recovery, and matrix-acid well stimulation. Theory (Rossen and Gauglitz, 1990; Ashoori et al., 2012) and...

History matching can play a key role in improving geological characterization and reducing the uncertainty of reservoir model predictions. Application of reservoir history matching is restricted by the huge computational cost by amongst others the many runs of the full model. Surrogate models with a reduced complexity are therefore used to...

Evaluating an adequate computer model representing the characteristics of a subsurface reservoir is of great importance in the oil and gas industry. With recent data acquisition developments, high-resolution geological models can be generated for the subsurface reservoirs; however, uncertainties of geological data and too many details in the...

In the community of petroleum engineering, the use of surrogate modelling techniques have recently gained more and more popularity to improve the efficiency of history matching. However, it is still not possible to fully utilize their potential in realistic applications. One of the challenges is to retain high accuracy while increasing the...

Punchiná reservoir is part of the San Carlos Hydroelectric Power Plant, situated in the Guatapé watershed. The Guatapé river is an affluent of the Samaná Norte river, which in turn is an affluent of the Magdalena river. San Carlos Hydroelectric Project uses the waters from the rivers San Carlos and Guatapé and discharges the turbined flow...

We explore and develop a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD)-based deflation method for the solution of ill-conditioned linear systems, appearing in simulations of two-phase flow through highly heterogeneous porous media. We accelerate the convergence of a Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient (PCG) method achieving speed-ups of factors up to...

The main objective of this study is to perform Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) using a detailed representation of fractured reservoirs. This is achieved by creating a simplified representation of the fracture network while preserving the main characteristics of the high-fidelity model. We include information at different scales in the UQ...

We present a multi-level discrete fracture model (MLDFM) to guarantee a robust and efficient solution for naturally fractured reservoir simulation. In MLDFM, we apply a triple continuum model using structured grid for forward simulation where large-scale fractures are represented with numerical embedded discrete fracture model (EDFM) and the...

Geothermal energy is gaining momentum as a renewable energy source. Reservoir simulation studies are often used to understand the underlying physics interactions and support decision making. Uncertainty related to geothermal systems can be substantial for subsurface and operational parameters and their interaction with regards to the output...

Imaging-type monitoring techniques are used in monitoring dynamic processes in many domains, including medicine, engineering, and geophysics. This paper aims to propose an efficient workflow for application of such data for the conditioning of simulation models. Such applications are very common in e.g. the geosciences, where large-scale...

The construction of drinking-water reservoirs in previously free-flowing river basins introduces challenges in operational water management, especially in data scarce environments. Often resulting in effectively un- gauged basins. In order to be able to estimate the expected increase in water supply, the hydrology of the ungauged sub-basins must...

The Netherlands will need to transform her traditionally fossil fueled energy system in the coming decades to achieve the goal of reducing CO2 emissions to net-zero in 2050. Therefore, an increase in renewable energy sources as solar and wind energy in the overall energy mix will be essential. However, due to the highly variable energy...

Although a transition to more sustainable energy production is necessary, fossil fuels will remain a crucial contributor to the world's energy production in the near future. In numerically maximizing the production of these fuels, as well as in many other optimization problems, an objective function has to be optimized on the basis of an input...

Natural gas hydrates are often considered as a hazard in hydrocarbon production and pipeline transport, but are also recognized as a potential energy resource. Naturally occurring hydrate deposits exist under suitable conditions of low temperature and high pressure, typically in shallow marine sediments and in and below the permafrost, and may...

Geological storage of COኼ is a crucial and upcoming technology to reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Due to the buoyant characteristic of injected gas, the security of underground storage is a major concern. To asses the security of COኼ storage, an accurate prediction of the gas plume behaviour is essential. In this study, a fully...

The hot water produced from a geothermal doublet possesses energy, which once utilized, the water cools down and is re-introduced back into the same reservoir at a sufficient distance using an injector well. As cold water flows through the reservoir, it acquires thermal energy from surrounding in-situ rocks. This process recurs until a...
