Abstract: This paper constructed a coupled mathematical model with two flow directions (matrix inside fracture network) to analyse the rate transient behaviours in oil reservoirs. Firstly, we formulate the 1-D flow solutions for each region, and then couple them by imposing flux and pressure continuity across the boundaries between regions. Secondly, we solve the model with the linear flow model and using Laplace transform and Stehfest algorithm comprehensively. Thirdly, the corresponding algorithm is designed and the code is written for calculation. Finally, the model solution is verified with one flow direction model thoroughly.

Keywords: production simulation; coupled mathematical model; Laplace transform; Stehfest algorithm; two flow directions model.
