The current stage of the oil and gas industry is characterized by the global application of computer technologies. At the same time, 3D simulation modelling, which should provide remaining oil reserves localization on mature fields, in practice is faced with many challenges.


The lecture considers the most common errors in modelling and limitations of modern reservoir simulators with examples of oil fields.


The lecture offers some recommendations to improve the quality of modelling, reduce risks in workover selection and development optimization as well as analytical methods of  oil reserves allocation estimates for workovers.

Also the lecture discusses methods of formalization and automation of procedures related to improving of oil field development efficiency.
