PumaFlow(R) embeds best-in-class formulations for any reservoir configuration, including black-oil, dual medium, compositional, chemical EOR, thermal, and unconventional reservoirs into a single calculator and user interface. For the last twenty years, PumaFlow® has been the reference simulator for fractured reservoirs and the modeling of all exchange mechanisms between matrix and fractures including capillarity, gravity drainage and viscous forces, diffusion and block-to-block re-imbibition.
PumaFlow® accurately handles various thermal processes that can be combined with dual medium and compositional options for fractured reservoirs. Optional gas adsorption model can be added to simulate shale gas reservoirs. All types of chemical EOR processes are accurately modeled, including polymer, surfactants, alkaline, CO2, ASP, foam, and others. PumaFlow® offers also a complete solution to design and simulate Intelligent Completion Devices.
PumaFlow® numerical solvers and numerical schemes (SOLSS, IMPES, IMPEX and AIM) have been relentlessly optimized. They leverage computer configuration through unrivaled scalability across cluster nodes, adopting innovative solving algorithms and by optimizing domains partitioning. PumaFlow® allows running very large models with performance improvement, often up to 64 cores. PumaFlow runs on Linux and Windows platforms.
PumaFlow® comes with an innovative approach to the user interface, using an industry-standard computer environment and supported by a relational database. All the static and dynamic parameters and input data used by the simulation can be interactively and graphically input, controlled and modified in seconds. PumaFlow® can also run using traditional keyword files. It comes with modern graphically-oriented post-processing capabilities allowing instant analysis of the results of multiple simulation runs. The post-processing is also fully compatible with Eclipse, VIP/Nexus and CMG simulators.
