Integrated Parallel Accurate Reservoir Simulators (IPARS), developed under the directorship of Mary Wheeler at the Center for Subsurface Modeling, at the University of Texas’ Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics, TICAM, is a framework for developing parallel models of subsurface flow and transport through porous media. It currently can simulate single phase (water only), two phase (water and oil) or three phase (water, oil and gas) flow through a multi-block 3D porous medium. IPARS can be applied to model water table decline due to overproduction near urban areas, or enhanced oil and gas recovery in industrial applications.
