COURSEINFORMATION

CourseSize
Thiscourseis6unitsofcredit(UOC).UOCsindicatethenominalworkloadforstudents.The
normalworkloadexpectationsatUNSWare2530hourspersessionforeachunitofcredit;
including class contact hours, preparation and time spent on all assessable work. For this
course,thismeansanaveragetotalworkloadof12hoursperweek.

AttendanceatClasses
Students are expected to be regular and punctual in attendance at lectures and tutorials
during the session. Students who attend less than 80% of their possible classesmay not be
admitted to the final exam. The following UNSW webpage gives further guidance for
attendanceatorabsencefromclasses:https://my.unsw.edu.au/

AimsandLearningOutcomes

This course aims to (1) introduce the student to the background knowledge in numerical
reservoir simulation which is a widely used tool in petroleum industry and research and (2)
guide the student to learn how to solve reservoir engineering problems through the
professionaluseofnumericalreservoirsimulation.
Thelearningoutcomesareforthestudentto(1)gainknowledgeandskillsneededtosolve
reservoir engineering problems by means of numerical techniques, (2) apply integrated
knowledge of math and basic sciences including geosciences to the solution of problems
related to fluid flow in porous media and reservoir performance predictions, and (3)
understandthefunctionofcommercialreservoirsimulatorsforforecastingfutureoilandgas
productionfromhydrocarbonreservoirs.

LearningandTeachingStrategies
Students are expected to become actively involved in the learning process. The learning
strategyisforstudentstoparticipateinlecturesandtutorialsthroughquestionandanswers.
Inclass applications and discussions will stimulate students learning. The specific learning
andteachingstrategiesoftheindividualpartsaregivenbelow.

The teaching strategy is composed of three main parts: (i) lectures (ii) practical learning in
tutorials and (iii) individual project. The benefit of the lectures is for students to build a
fundamental understanding of numerical reservoir simulation. The material delivered
through the lectures will be applied by students during tutorial times. For week 713,
Students will use a commercial simulator in their tutorials. This practice will help develop
their content knowledge as well as problemsolving, reasoning, communication, and self
assessmentskills.

For the project, students are required to write a compositional simulator code to simulate
CO
2
injection in an oil reservoir. The code must be capable to simulate at least four
components including water. The students will write the flow equations and solve them
using same techniques utilised to solve black oil model in the lectures. The students may
choose any appropriate programming language to write the simulator code. Then the
studentswillvalidatetheirmodelusingacommercialsimulator.

ACADEMICHONESTYANDPLAGIARISM

AccordingtotheUNSWwebsitewww.lc.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism

Plagiarism is taking the ideas or words of others and passing them off as your own.
Plagiarismisatypeofintellectualtheft.

Plagiarism happens for a number of reasonsone is because some students decide


consciouslytogaincreditfortheworkofothers.However,mostincidentsofplagiarismare

This course will be an important opportunity for you to develop skills in writing and
referencingyour sources so that you avoid plagiarism. Look at the website above for help,

Foradditionalclarification
1. Students who do not attend a written examination will fail unless they have a valid
doctorscertificateprovingthattheyareillatthetimeoftheexamination.
2. Students who attend a written examination, but who fall ill during the examination
will be assessed on the examination paper they submit unless they have a valid

3. In the case of illness, the doctors certificate must be handed to the Student Centre
andcopiedtothecourseauthoritynolaterthan3daysafterthedateofthewritten
examination.
4. If a student can prove illness with a doctors certificate, in extreme cases only the
course authority might give special consideration and arrange another examination
before the following UNSW semester. In such cases, the course authority either will
arrange another written examination or alternatively will arrange an oral
examination attended by 2 or 3 academics. Whether or not the course authority
arranges another examination and the form and timing of such an arrangement are
entirelyatthediscretionofthecourseauthority,whosedecisionisfinal.
5. The School keeps a register of special consideration applications. The history of a
students previous applications for special consideration is taken into account when

Equityanddiversity
Those students who have a disability that requires some adjustment in their teaching or
learning environment are encouraged to discuss their study needs with the course
convener prior to, or at the commencement of, their course, or with the Equity Officer
(Disability) in the Equity and Diversity Unit (9385 4734 or
www.equity.unsw.edu.au/disabil.html). Issues to be discussed may include access to
materials, signers or notetakers, the provision of services and additional exam and
assessment arrangements. Early notification is essential to enable any necessary
adjustmentstobemade.
