We present our progress on the application of physics informed deep learning to reservoir simulation problems. The model is a neural network that is jointly trained to respect governing physical laws and match boundary conditions. The methodology is hereby used to simulate a 2-phase immiscible transport problem (Buckley-Leverett). The model is able to produce an accurate physical solution both in terms of shock and rarefaction and honors the governing partial differential equation along with…
