Graphics Processing Unit–Based, Industrial Grade Compositional Reservoir Simulator

Bg resource

We prove that the benefits of GPU-based reservoir simulation persist with a complex fluid description through the extension of a commercial GPU-based black-oil simulator to include a compositional description based on standard cubic equations of state (EOSs).
