1 Introduction
Compositional
Many applications require the simulation of composi tional multiphase Darcy flow in heterogeneous porous media. In oil reservoir modelling, the compositional tri phase Darcy flow simulator is a key tool to predict and optimize the production of a reservoir. In sedimentary basin modelling, such models are used to simulate the migration of the oil and gas phases in a basin satu rated with water at geological space and time scales. The objectives are to predict the location of the po tential reservoirs as well as the quality and quantity of oil trapped therein. InCO2geological storage, com positional multiphase Darcy flow models are used to optimize the injection ofCO2and to assess the long term integrity of the storage. Finally, twophase com positional Darcy flow models are used to study the gas migration in nuclear waste repositories (which consist of porous media saturated with water), and to assess the safety of the storage.
The numerical simulation of such models first re lies on a proper formulation which can account for the coupling of the mass and pore volume conservations together with the thermodynamical equilibrium. A ma jor difficulty there is the management of phase appear ance and disappearance induced by the change of phase reactions assumed to be at equilibrium. Many formula tions have been proposed mainly in the oil industry (see [12] and the numerous references therein), and more recently for the modelling of gas migration in nuclear waste disposal (see for example [4], [9], [11]). In the following, we propose an extension to an ar bitrary number of phases of Coats formulation [14] de signed for reservoir simulation. This formulation, which is expressed in the natural variables of the thermody
