Globally, tight oil resources provide significant amount of petroleum for the world’s energy needs. The flow behavior of tight oil in unconventional reservoirs are described by peculiar complexities that present challenging tasks in finding immediate solutions for reservoir engineers. This research focuses on the implementation of robust numerical methods to simulate the behavior of unconventional tight oil reservoirs.
