Simulation of water flooding on field scale models is well established. However, it is more challenging to model gas injection
and combination of water and gas (WAG), especially when injected gas is near-miscible with strong compositional mass exchanges. 
We have made use of extreme fine-scale reservoir simulation models as the “true” solution.

The team have proposed and tested a general upscaling workflow to guide the necessary grid coarsening process. 
A new approach was needed and required to split the problem into two groups, static and dynamic upscaling. 
The final coarse-scale dynamic responses presented a close agreement with the fine-scale production results
and required less than 0.005% of the total time used for a single fine-scale simulation run.
