GAP Transient:
New Transient Flow Simulator
Used with GAP to model transient flow within wells and surface pipeline network.
Ability to quickly and easily transform an existing steady-state GAP model into a transient model.
Flexible Model Setup
Allows the entire network of wells and pipeline to be modelled in transient or alternatively a smaller subset of the network can be modelled using transient calculations while the other elements remain steady-state.
Robust IPR Modelling
Allows integration with Transient IPR models for more realistic inflow response
Allows integration with numerical simulators through RESOLVE
2D/3D visualisation of detailed transient results
Direct access to results similar to steady-state pipeline flow assurance

Version 14
MBAL Version 14 – Enhancements Implemented:
History matching and Simulations
· In the “History matching-History Setup” there is a new option to, “Include water tank transmissibility water rates in aquifer for energy plots”. This is only for multi tanks where a water tank with aquifer has been defined to model a common aquifer.
· Comments added to a history data point are now displayed in plots as a popup (i.e. when hovering the cursor)
· Now possible to connect a history well to more than one prediction well.
· Flying brick plot – accessed from analysis button in the history simulation and prediction plot. Shows the various components for expansion and production for a particular time step. It is also possible to do an animation so it skips thru all the time steps.
Tight Reservoir
· Phase correction has been added to tight reservoir wells in MBAL. This is the same correction as in Resolve’s tight reservoir object.
· Added option to model gas dissolved in water
· Undo facility under input menu allowing users to undo a change to the main interface (i.e. the addition of a tank element / transmissibility). · MBAL will now auto-save the current data to a file in the temporary directory in case the PC fails or MBAL crashes.

This is a list of enhancements to Prosper for each new Version released.
Version 15.0
This is a summary of the main additions that have been incorporated into the PROSPER program since the 2016 official release.
Artificial Lift

VLP Export

· Enhanced PVT Input Screen
o All features of PVT (emulsions, matching etc.) can be viewed in the same screen now
· Enhanced VLP Matching Screen
o Can view deviation of matched and unmatched correlation from test data
o Allows test to be matched to to be selected
· Enhanced Artificial Lift infterfaces
o All features can be seen in one screen
o Parameters that are no longer applicable based on other setting will not be active

· Ability to plot more than one set of IPR test data for multilayer wells
· Ability to transfer data from Single Point QuickLook into Multi Point QuickLook and vice versa.

What is New in PVTP 13.0
Path to Surface Data Object
The RESOLVE Path to Surface Object can now be used in PVTp to define the path to surface used to derive standard condition properties
What is New in PVTP 11.0
Improvements to Hydrafact hydrate model
PVTp code has been improved to provide a greater stability for hydrate calculations. The number of hydrate forming species has been increased. Improved modeling of CO2 hydrates.
New enthalpy model
New enthalpy model was implemented to allow more accurate thermal fluid properties calculation. The total enthalpy for each component is calculated as a sum of ideal and real enthalpy.
Specific heat matching
In previous version specific heat capacity was calculated from a simple correlation. As a result of that specific heat capacity values were overestimated, in particular for heavy oils. In the new version Lee and Kesler model along with possibility of specific heat matching were implemented to improve calculation of thermal properties.
Salt calculations have been added to flash calculations
It is now possible to run flash calculations with possibility of salt deposition and maximum solubility.
OLGA – Leda Flow export format is available
It is now possible to export Black Oil tables to be used in Leda Flow software.
