Abstract

In this paper, we address some of the very real challenges facing a world with an ever increasing appetite for oil. Finite global oil reserves pose an impending threat to our way of life and improving on the current inefficiency of the oil recovery process is increasingly becoming the primary research focus of the petroleum industry. Numerical simulation is a particularly powerful research tool and we address the need for developing codes which will be capable of improving our understanding of oil reservoir dynamics.
