Development of a Standalone Compositional Simulator for Modelling Multiphase Flow and Temperature Distribution Along Wellbore

Wanqiang Xiong



This presentation shows that currently our wellbore simulator can perform single-phase injection & production, two-phase steam injection in different wellbores, SAGD circulation & injection, and multi-phase and compositional simulations. It also embedded an annulus heat transfer simulator and semi-numerical method developed from series of FLUENT simulations for improving heat loss calculation accuracy. A Windows-based interface is developed for preparing data and results visualization. Future work includes improving existing functions to handle more complex wellbore configurations and add more features for field-scale applications.
