Advanced Parallel Thermal Reservoir Simulator

Thermal recovery methods are typically used in heavy oil reservoirs where the high oil viscosity can be sensibly reduced with temperature increases. NUMSIP is a 3-D, three phase, multiple components thermal reservoir simulator. It can be applied to study the following problems:

  • Single well huff and puff
  • Continuous steam injection
  • Hot fluid or gas injection
  • CO2 or natural gas injection
  • Well bore heaters and simple combustion
  • Steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD)
