    Abstract

    In this paper, we propose a set of tests for the hydrocarbon trap and leakage phenomena and discuss the assumptions implicit in these models. Our aim is to: (a) resolve and expose some of the potential modelling errors and mis-conceptions which can result from incorrect numerical representation of these physical phenomena; and (b) to set in place a sound basis for representing more complex effects which are difficult to validate.
