Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) have been traditionally used for fast 3D game rendering. However, over the past decade they have been harnessed more broadly to accelerate computational workloads in areas of scientific computing including those related to oil and gas exploration and production.
Today’s leading generation GPUs offer roughly 10x more bandwidth and FLOPS than CPUs. ECHELON uses that full capability to offer game changing performance which will only improve as GPU technology advances into the future. ECHELON is the only simulator designed from inception to run all computational kernels on powerful GPU hardware.
Faster simulation enables reservoir engineers to do more studies and use statistical ensemble methodologies, history matching, and multi-realization workflows, yielding more accurate and more predictive results in shorter time.
ECHELON efficiently simulates exceptionally large models while maintaining the accuracy expected from legacy simulators. This allows for higher resolution and improved engineering accuracy, leading to better decisions.
ECHELON runs on compact GPU workstations and clusters, simulating up to 64 million cells on a 4 GPU node. Customers achieve exceptional performance while using far fewer hardware resources than other modern simulators.
