Conservation of momentum
Conservation of momentum is governed by the NavierStokes equation, but is
normally simplified for low velocity flow in porous materials to be described by
the semiempirical Darcy's equation, which for one dimensional, horizontal flow is:

Brinkman's equation reverts to Darcy's equation for flow in porous media, since the last
term then normally is negligible, and to Stoke's equation for channel flow because
the Darcy part of the equation then may be neglected.
In the following, we assume that Darcy's
equation is valid for flow in porous media.

Normally, we may assume that the bulk volume of the porous material is
constant, i.e. the bulk compressibility is zero. This is not always true,
as witnessed by the subsidence in the Ekofisk area.

For reservoir flow, a pressure condition will normally be specified as a bottom
hole pressure of a production or injection well, at some position of the
reservoir. Strictly speaking, this is not a boundary condition, but the
treatment of this type of condition is similar to the treatment of a
boundary pressure condition.

Boundary conditions
We have two types of BC's: pressure conditions (Dirichlet conditions) and rate
conditions (Neumann conditions). The most common boundary conditions in
reservoirs, including sources/sinks, are discussed in the following.

Boundary and Initial Conditions of Multiphase Systems
Initial conditions of multiphase systems
In addition to specification of initial pressures, we also need to specify initial
saturations in a multiphase system. This requires knowledge of wateroil
contact (WOC) and gasoil contact (GOC). Assuming that the reservoir is
in equilibrium, we may compute initial phase pressures based on contact
levels and densities. Then, equilibrium saturations may be interpolated
from the capillary pressure curves. Alternatively, the initial saturations are
based on measured logging data.
