May 2018.


The Quad-Tree decomposition method is extended to unstructured oblong grid blocks for upscaling of absolute permeability in 2D heterogeneous thin stratified reservoirs with anisotropic permeability. The simulation results before and after upscaling are then compared in terms of accuracy and computational efficiency.
