In this presentation, we give an overview of the numerical methods used in commercial oil and gas reservoir simulation. The models are described by flow through porous media and are solved using a series of nested numerical methods. Most of the computational effort resides in solving large linear systems resulting from Newton iterations. Therefore, we will go in greater detail about the iterative linear solvers and preconditioning techniques.
Note: This talk will cover similar topics to the InFoMM group meeting talks on Friday 28th April, but I will discuss more mathematical details for this JAMS talk.
