Spectacular developments in computer technologies, made in the recent years, open a wide range of new opportunities for hydrodynamic simulations. Among the most obvious brute force benefits are the removal of model size limits due to switch to 64-bit operational systems, transfer of parallel calculations from bulky expensive clusters to cheap multicore desktops and widespread availability of powerful 3D graphic cards.

However, below the surface, there are some more subtle benefits, which qualitatively transform the very paradigm of doing hydrodynamic simulations. Using real examples, we demonstrate how sophisticated runtime analytics and high user interactivity, new forms of distributed collective work on simulation projects and various forms of designer experiments provides engineers with new set of tools for comprehensive history matching, and ultimately leads to building more realistic dynamic reservoir models in less time. The main focus of the presentation and demos will be to demonstrate new approaches and techniques, which cannot be applied in the classical “pre-processor”, ”core simulation”, “postprocessor” schemes and require new generation of highly interactive and integrated simulation tools.
