OPM Latest Update

29.06.2017

OPM, an open-source reservoir simulator, encouraging open innovation and reproducible research for modeling and simulation of porous media processes recently reported a development edge performance boost over the prior release by at least 25%. Andreas Lauser, visiting consultant at IRIS, states and shows the above inspiring figure.

For nearly a decade, IRIS, joining with SINTEF ICT, Statoil, and Ceetron Solutions, strive for the best to model industrially and scientifically relevant flow and transport processes in porous media and bridge the gap between the different application areas of porous media modeling, including reservoir mechanics, CO2 sequestration, biological systems, etc. As of today, OPM is a competitive with the benchmark commercial software, ECLIPSE 100 and other academic open-source simulators.

A recent project on CO2-EOR Co-optimization, funded by Statoil and the CLIMIT program, has been commenced by Yuqing Chang and Tor Harald Sandve, research scientists at IRIS. Using black-oil model with solvent component embedded in OPM Flow, they showed that CO2 not only can be used for storage and recovery purposes but also it positively stimulates the economic growth. The project demonstrates the versatility of OPM to model industrial EOR applications.
