Release Overview Chapter 1

Overview of Developments in 2010.1The developments for ECLIPSE 2010.1, FrontSim 2010.1 and the pre- and post-processors are outlined in this section.

ECLIPSE 2010.1This is a major release of the ECLIPSE suite of reservoir simulators with significant functional extensions in several key areas in both ECLIPSE 100 and ECLIPSE 300. The emphasis in this release is on the enablement of complex workflows and on feature compatibility. Thermal Recovery Simulation Equilibration option extensions Dual tubing wells enabling detailed steam injection control in SAGD processes Increased temperature ranges Linear Solver improvements Partitioning of Tracers into multiple phases Feature compatibility enabling construction of complex Chemical EOR strategies Extensions to the Rock Physics and Saturation Function options Generation of streamlines from ECLIPSE results User Keyword rules in development strategies Improved Results Visualization Sustained Capacity Tests for oil and water Release Overview Overview of Developments in 2010.1

Enhanced Oil Recovery

Improved Integration with Petrel Reservoir Engineering

Flexible Field Development Strategies

ECLIPSE Suite Release Notes

Keyword parameterization for use in control logic Extensions to the user defined quantity framework Multiple flow paths to surface Parallel streamline tracers Enhanced oil recovery options Grid property modifications throughout the simulation model (static and dynamic)

Well Modeling Compatibility Improvements for Existing Options

FrontSim 2010.1FrontSim 2010.1 is a major release of the streamline simulator. The emphasis in this release has been focused on the capabilities outlined below. Workflow Enablement through Petrel Reservoir Engineering Geological screening Pattern Flood Management (PFM) Generation of streamlines from ECLIPSE results Streamline tracing through LGRs Use of multicore technology. Improved well and surface constraint handling.

Performance enhancements Reliability, Consistency and Compatibility with ECLIPSE

ECLIPSE Pre- and Post Processing in 2010.1The focus of this release has been on the maintenance of our existing pre- and post-processors, prioritizing business critical defects. PVTi has been the primary focus in this release in order to improve the usability and the overall stability of the program. The focus was on fixing issues and errors found in the previous versions and implementing some developments that enhance the existing workflows, particularly around thermal simulation.

Product and Feature Changes Chapter 2

Platform AvailabilityAll This release includes updates to the ECLIPSE simulators (ECLIPSE and ECLIPSE FrontSim). SIS reminds customers that we are working towards the retirement of the interactive products, and their replacement by Petrel Reservoir Engineering. Customers are strongly advised to consult their SIS Account Manager about transition to Petrel RE. Note that Petrel RE includes access to some interactive products (ECLIPSE Office, Schedule, FloGrid, FloViz and GRAF) under the Petrel license. For full information on the supported hardware, devices and software systems mentioned in this chapter, refer to the Installation Guide.

Note

LinuxNote SIS advises customers that the interactive pre- and post-processors are no longer released on Linux. These products were last released on Linux in 2009.1. They are now released on Microsoft Windows only. There are no plans to discontinue support for the simulators on 64-bit x86_64 and ppc64 Linux.

The ECLIPSE simulators are no longer released on 32 bit Linux systems. They were last released on these systems in 2009.2. SIS advises customers that the 2010.2 release will be the last version to support Itanium processors.

Product and Feature Changes Platform Availability

7

ECLIPSE works on RedHat 4 or 5 and SUSE SLES 10 based systems.

Windows Windows 2000 is no longer supported for any application. Microsoft XP, XP64, Vista 32, Vista 64 are supported. We tested all the products on Vista Business and Vista Enterprise. However, we expect that all of the variants in the Vista family will function correctly. Microsoft Windows Server 2008, 64 bit, is supported for the simulators only. There are no plans to discontinue any 32 bit applications on Windows-based systems.

BenchmarksThe new distribution format includes all the benchmarks and utility software. The benchmark data includes new FrontSim and ECLIPSE 300 benchmarks. These can be found under ECLIPSE/resources/BENCHMARKS.

Certified PlatformsSeveral new platforms have been added to the certified list and these can be obtained from the certified systems letter that will accompany the 2010.1 release. Note however that with the exception of Altix there are no certified Intel Itanium systems on the certified list.
