B024 RESERVOIR STREAMLINE SIMULATION ACCOUNTING FOR EFFECTS OF CAPILLARITY AND WETTABILITY Abstract 1 In this work we present the mathematical grounds and the numerical developments necessary for introduction of the capillary forces and the wettability into a streamline-based simulator. The corresponding simulation tool (the CapSL simulator) has been developed on the basis of the 3DSL0.25 streamline simulator by R.Batycky SUPRI-C group Department of Petroleum Engineering Stanford. Our simulator is capable of predicting the two phase displacement with full account for capillary effects varying between different zones of a heterogeneous reservoir. Introduction In this paper we briefly describe the mathematical grounds
