A Scalable Parallel Black Oil Simulator on Distributed Memory Parallel Computers

Joint work with Dr. Hui Liu and Dr. John Chen


This presentation introduces a scalable parallel oil simulator. The correctness is verified by comparing the results with CMG and other simulators for benchmarks. The three-stage preconditioner which is used in the simulator shows effective for the linear systems from the Newton iteration for the black oil model and also for extremely large-scale simulations.
