Abstract

An account is given on the implementation of a local grid refinement method into a three-dimensional simulator to model flow performances of slanted, undulating horizontal, and multi-lateral/multi-branch wells. The constructed model utilizes the residual equation to determine the flow into the well. The model provides accurate results even for early times of simulation for any wellbore architecture under consideration.
