    Abstract

    The increasing use of detailed full-field 3D reservoir models introduces the issue of the correct determination of multiphase flow functions in three directions. In this paper, a model for a 3D sedimentary structure is described and directional flow functions are derived using a development of the geopseudo approach. In order to incorporate the effects of 3D lamina structure, a new method of upscaling has been devised.
