SIMEDWin is a coal seam methane reservoir simulator, which can be used to investigate the relationships between reservoir properties, well operating procedures and gas production. SIMEDWin is used to optimise well field design, reservoir management and production forecasting.
In addition to coal bed methane, SIMEDWin has been used extensively by industry for the management of gas drainage during coal mining and significantly improved the planning of drainage works. It has a number of features specifically designed for coal mine gas management in contrast to other coal bed methane reservoir simulators.
SIMEDWin is a further development of SIMED II, which was originally developed by Val Pinczewski and Mark Stevenson, School of Petroleum Engineering, University of New South Wales.

SIMEDWin is primarily designed for modelling the drainage of gas from coal seams but it can also be used to model conventional dry gas reservoirs. It is capable of single well or full field simulations, which involve multiple wells with multiple completions.
SIMEDWin is appropriate for simulating reservoirs which involve:
Postprocessing of predictions of SIS gas rates and bottomhole pressure
SIMEDWin incorporates a number of advanced functions, which makes the software ideal for use in the coal seam methane and mining industries. Some significant features of SIMEDWin include:
Reservoir grid design window
