Summary: Abstract
Grid technology will be a valuable technique providing both the
software and resources necessary for calculating complex
algorithms used in predicting geological phenomenon. This setup is
enabling huge, expensive, multi-processing servers to be replaced
by many small, relatively cheaper personal computers. With the ever
expansion of petroleum drilling projects, reducing time and money
are becoming the basic objectives for reservoir engineers. The idea
is to create an application that will allow users to access across the
internet, from any web browser, a computational grid. There they can
input data from their drilling site to a main server from where it can
be distributed over a network of computers and then processed and
simulated. The UCoMS project portal group is developing the web
interface to input the drilling and simulator parameters and the
middleware group is setting up the programs to handle the requests
from the portal and processing of the parameter values. As part of
this project we hope to achieve by using the Apache Ant with the
Jakarta Tomcat container in conjunction with the GridSphere /
GridPortlets framework to setup an application. We were able to
setup a grid of computers at various institutions in the state of
