SUPRI-B is an Industrial Consortium focused on Reservoir Simulation research. Our industry partners include domestic and international oil companies, as well as service companies and software providers. These companies take an active part in the annual research review meeting, usually held in May.
Membership in the SUPRI-B Reservoir Simulation consortium is open to everyone. The membership fee is $40,000 per year, renewed annually, although we are interested in multiple-year, long-term interactions. The membership fee is used primarily to support graduate students post-doctoral fellows, and computer facilities.
Affiliate members may wish to provide additional funds above the annual fees to be used for SUPRI-B Affiliate Program research conducted by a participating faculty member, or for a particular area of research under the SUPRI-B Affiliate Program. The faculty director of the program will determine how the additional funding is to be used in the SUPRI-B Affiliate Program. All research results arising from the use of the additional funding will be shared with all of the Affiliate Program members and the general public.
The benefits of formal affiliation with the SUPRI-B program are:
