    This review will highlight recent developments in methods for scale-up of multi-phase flow in porous media. Scale-up is a necessary step when going from multi-million cell geostatistical models to reservoir simulation models. Multi-phase scale-up methods available include steady state methods as well as dynamic methods, along with recent developments which may remove the need for scale-up as an activity separate from simulation. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
