Multiphase Fluid Flow in Porous and Fractured Reservoirsdiscusses the process of modeling fluid flow in petroleum and natural gas reservoirs, a practice that has become increasingly complex thanks to multiple fractures in horizontal drilling and the discovery of more unconventional reservoirs and resources.

The book updates the reservoir engineer of today with the latest developments in reservoir simulation by combining a powerhouse of theory, analytical, and numerical methods to create stronger verification and validation modeling methods, ultimately improving recovery in stagnant and complex reservoirs.

Going beyond the standard topics in past literature, coverage includes well treatment, Non-Newtonian fluids and rheological models, multiphase fluid coupled with geomechanics in reservoirs, and modeling applications for unconventional petroleum resources. The book equips today's reservoir engineer and modeler with the most relevant tools and knowledge to establish and solidify stronger oil and gas recovery.

  • Delivers updates on recent developments in reservoir simulation such as modeling approaches for multiphase flow simulation of fractured media and unconventional reservoirs
  • Explains analytical solutions and approaches as well as applications to modeling verification for today's reservoir problems, such as evaluating saturation and pressure profiles and recovery factors or displacement efficiency
  • Utilize practical codes and programs featured from online companion website
Yu-Shu Wu is currently a tenured Professor and the Reservoir Modeling Chair for the Department of Petroleum Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado, USA. Dr. Wu's research and teaching areas include reservoir engineering, specifically reservoir characterization and simulation, fractured reservoir characterizatio...
