Abstract:

This article is devoted to the modelling and the finite volume approximation of multi-component multi-phase flows in a petroleum reservoir, from both a dynamic and a thermal point of view. We introduce an adequate energy equation and the corresponding thermodynamics, which are next integrated in the isothermal GPRS code. Numerical examples and comparisons with the isothermal GPRS code are presented.

Keywords: complex thermodynamics; finite volumes; multi-phase anisothermal flow; petroleum reservoir
