CMG reports CoFlow deployment hiccup

Novel flow modeler hits performance snag.

In September 2015, Computer Modeling Group (CMG) released revision 10 of CoFlow, its next-generation dynamic reservoir simulator, to partners Shell and Petrobras. The simulator was deployed in a target asset to assist with day-to-day business decisions. The solution is still in use but CGM reports that due to ‘identified issues’ with software performance, further deployment has been suspended. CGM, Petrobras and Shell remain committed to the ongoing development and success of the project. Version R11 is scheduled for release later in 2016. CoFlow development has been underway since 2006 and is to continue ‘until ultimate delivery’ of the software. CMG puts its share of the costs at $6.4 CAD million for fiscal 2016.
