Applications and Programming Models: "Parallel Reservoir Simulation Using the Trilinos Software Framework," Serguei Maliassov, ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company


No Video Available


Numerical simulation of reservoirs is an integral part of geoscientific studies to optimize petroleum recovery. Modern petroleum reservoir simulation requires simulating detailed and computationally expensive geological and physical models. Parallel reservoir simulators have the potential to solve larger, more realistic problems than previously possible.

To make the solution of these large problems feasible, an efficient parallel implementation of the algorithm is necessary. Such a parallelization of the algorithm requires proper data structures and data layout, some parallel direct and iterative solvers, and some parallel preconditioners. For the development of parallel reservoir simulator, we found the Trilinos Project to be an efficient environment to develop such a complex parallel application.
