First, the background of wellbore model applications, solution method and theory of wellbore/reservoir coupling simulation is demonstrated. It is pointed out that the slippery between phases has not been considered in the homogenous model, which means that all phases have the same velocity. Second, the specified module future of fully coupled system, iteratively coupled system, dynamic gridding in wellbore, heat loss to formation, multiple well control on segment, multiphase flow models, black oil and compositional model and software engineering are presented. Finally, the specific methodology is given.
