Basins and reservoirs modeling and simulation oUR solutions IFPEN develops innovative underground modelling and simulation solutions, both at the scale of sedimentary basins and at the reservoir level. These different solutions can be used to manage uncertainties related to underground exploration and exploitation and to reduce risks. The results of
Basins and reservoirs modeling and simulation oUR sTRENGHTS Over the course of many years, IFPEN has developed renowned expertise in: descriptive and quantitative geosciences, sedimentology, petrophysics, geochemistry, and geological modeling physical sciences, physical chemistry of complex materials and fluids, fluid, solid and structural mechanics, and applied mathematics (numerical methods) Information
Basins and reservoirs modeling and simulation overview and challenges Sedimentary basins and the geological reservoirs that lie within them contain exploitable natural resources, including hydrocarbons, minerals, water, heat, etc. Sound knowledge of sedimentary basins and reservoirs in the underground environment is essential to reduce the risks associated with operations undertaken
