Abstract
Two-phase flow in porous media is widely used in petroleum reservoir simulation, during the secondary phase of the oil recovery process. This stage consists in the injection of water, the wetting phase, to mobilize the oil, the non-wetting phase, through the porous media. The governing equations of this scenario are derived from combining for each phase, mass conservation with Darcy’s law. This leads to a coupled non-linear system of transient PDE’s [1]. Improving the efficiency and the accu...
