Reservoir Modelling Software
RFD’s industry-leading tNavigator® is the first and only product on the market which dynamically combines a fully interactive 3D graphical user interface and a record breaking parallel supercomputing engine.
The core algorithms are based on the latest scientific developments in the field and provide the most efficient use of modern computing platforms. tNavigator provides superior performance and unparalleled user efficiency for reservoir engineers.
tNavigator® has a unified interface for geological modelling and dynamic simulation that allows integrated static and dynamic uncertainty analysis that correlates thousands of wells effectively. Hundreds of simulation cases can be handled within a single tNavigator project.
tNavigator® – Integrated static and dynamic modelling from reservoir to surface network
tNavigator® is a one-stop static and dynamic reservoir modelling package, run dynamic simulations, calculate PVT properties of fluid, build surface network model, calculate lifting tables, and perform extended uncertainty analysis as a part of one integrated workflow. tNavigator support multi-format and keywords from other commercial simulator.
tNavigator® parallel technology takes full advantage of multicore CPU and GPU processing units. The domain decomposition between computational threads fore shared and distributed memory systems, as well as load balancing is done automatically. tNavigator can be run on any laptop, any single, dual (or higher) CPU based workstation with one or multiple GPUs, and HPC clusters. Cloud based solution with full graphical GUI capabilities and cloud side post processing via remote desktop is available.
tNavigator® engines: Black Oil, Compositional and Thermal Compositional are full physics finite difference simulators with upstream approximation, molar densities and pressure used as principal variables. The coupling of well with reservoir solved fully implicit well equation. The simulators don’t require any other external software tools and can be used within integrated static, dynamic, and uncertainty workflows available in tNavigator. tNavigator is a single 450MB executable file that contains 4 million C++ codes and requires only 10 minutes to download. The application is easy to use and requires no installation.
Despite the small file size, its interface was designed to optimize the handling of complex wells, model grid by taking full advantage of cores parallelization and GPU capability. tNavigator optimizes its project loading efficiently with very minimal lag experience.
