We present a multiscale finite-volume (MSFV) method for multiphase flow and transport in heterogeneous porous media. The approach extends our recently developed MSFV method for single-phase flow. We use a sequential scheme that deals with flow (i.e., pressure and total velocity) and transport (i.e., saturation) separately and differently. For the flow problem, we employ two different sets of basis functions for the reconstruction of a conservative fine-scale total velocity field. Our basis… CONTINUE READING
