In this paper, we introduce our work on accelerating a black oil simulator using GPU-based parallel iterative linear solvers. We develop iterative linear solvers and several commonly used preconditioners on NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. These solvers and preconditioners are coupled with our in-house reservoir simulator. Numerical experiments show that our GPU-based black oil simulator is sped up around six times faster than a pure CPU-based simulator.
