S3connect couples surface network models in the GAP software to reservoir simulation models in Eclipse, FrontSim and VIP. The link uses full two-way coupling between surface and subsurface, allowing the creation of production forecasts that include the full complexity of the surface pipeline dynamics and detailed reservoir modeling, including heterogeneity. S3connect provides a very simple interface for linking the GAP model to reservoir models, including the connection of corresponding wells in the two systems. For fully compositional systems, the mapping between the components can also be easily specified. Setup of a coupled system is therefore very straightforward, allowing engineers to concentrate solely on engineering problems.
