LYNX is NITEC’s integrated workflow-based software for reservoir modeling and simulation.

Its design is focused on streamlining pre-processing of the data needed for simulation in a unified database. Its unique reservoir characterization, reservoir engineering tools supports geoscience and engineering staff to work more efficiently. It provides various engineering assessment tools to quickly analyze the data and simulation results. LYNX has been in development for over 15 years and contains many technologies within including functionalities/workflows specific to Unconventional basins.

LYNX has powerful pre- and post-processing capabilities along with unique simulation input and output data analysis technologies. LYNX significantly accelerates the HM process and enhances the quality of the following:

  • the reservoir characterization,
  • the numerical simulation history match, and
  • the simulation prediction analyses.

The software’s single database eliminates possible data transfer errors, provides a consistent single source for data, and significantly reduces the amount of time required to perform integrated studies.
It can handle multiple characterization cases/multiple upscaled simulation grids (models) and provide a comparison of results among them. It is a simulator pre- and post-processor with the analysis tools needed to truly integrate all the data and maintain consistency between the geologic model and the numerical simulation model.
