Successful OPM meeting in Oslo
23.06.2016A strong team from IRIS participated actively with interesting presentations and discussions at the 3rd OPM meeting.
In total 25 participants gathered from 1-2 of June at SINTEF in Oslo to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for Open-source Porous Media (OPM) tools. The participants came from four different countries and represented a variety of industry, research institutes and universities.
Tor Harald Sandve from IRIS presented results from CO₂-EOR simulations using the recently developed solvent model in OPM. The capability in OPM for conducting CO₂-EOR simulations on real field models was well received by the audience. The first day also included presentations on the recent development on polymer modeling, advanced well modeling as well as the parallelization in OPM. In addition, Jan Sagen from IFE presented recent development in IORSIM.
A key goal of OPM is to accelerate the knowledge transfer from academia to industry by providing a common tool that is open and accessible for all parts. As part of bringing together academia and industry, PhD candidates and researchers from the University of Stuttgart, Münster and TU Delft was invited to present their research on topics such as non-linear discretization schemes and higher order methods for the OPM community. The participants were also divided into groups to discuss different aspect of the current and future OPM development.
