A Fully Equivalent Global Pressure Formulation for Three-Phase Compressible Flow

  title={A Fully Equivalent Global Pressure Formulation for Three-Phase Compressible Flow},
  author={Guy Chavent},
We introduce a new global pressure formulation for immiscible three-phase compressible flows in porous media which is fully equivalent to the original equations, unlike the one introduced in [5]. In this formulation, the total volumetric flow of the three fluids and the global pressure follow a classical Darcy law, which simplifies the resolution of the pressure equation. However, this global pressure formulation exists only for Total Differential (TD) three-phase data, which depend only on two… CONTINUE READING
