The Reservoir Simulation Research program (SUPRI-B) is dedicated to research and development of advanced numerical techniques that enhance the value of reservoir simulation technology. Educating and developing the future leaders in the broad field of reservoir simulation and the wider energy industry are integral to the SUPRI-B mission. We review our research for member companies annually in a workshop at Stanford University, and we provide members with access to the results of our research efforts. We actively seek to collaborate with member companies on specific research projects.
The research group of Professor Hamdi Tchelepi in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering, Stanford University School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences seeks recent Ph.D. Scientists of exceptional promise for two postdoctoral positions in the domain of computational geomechanics and multiphase flow. The positions offer opportunities to develop innovative research programs in the context of a new collaborative effort between Stanford University, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and TOTAL. The objective of this project is to define and develop the next-generation multiphysics massively parallel research simulator, compatible with next-generation supercomputers, with a strong emphasis on coupled flow, transport and geomechanics in the presence of strong heterogeneities and fractures.
