A Massively Parallel Reservoir Simulator has been developed and fully integrated into a pre and post processing graphical environment.The simulator has been used in simulating giant oil fields using millions of grid points. Runs indicate near linear scale up performance with the increasing number of processors. The mega cell description provides detailed picture of the reservoir where the by passed oil pockets can be identified. With the current capabilities construction, running and analyzing the results is very fast.
