Accelerating Tight Reservoir Simulation Workflows With GPUs

Bg resource

There are numerous complex characteristics that impact the long-term decline behavior of wells in tight oil and gas reservoirs. We present our efforts to help eliminate this tradeoff by building a fully-implicit black-oil simulator that combines recent advances in simulation algorithms with the high performance of GPUs.
