The set of governing equations are the continuity equation,&nbsp;the Darcy’s law and an equation of state. The Hydraulic Diffusivity Equation (HDE), for the unknown pressure, is obtained from this set of fundamental equations and it is discretized by means of the Finite Difference Method (FDM) along with a time implicit formulation. Different numerical tests are performed in order to study the computational efficiency of the parallelized versions of Conjugate Gradient (CG), BiConjugate Gradient (BiCG) and BiConjugate Gradient Stabilized (BiCGStab)methods,and different production scenarios were considered for horizontal wells and single-phase gas flow. The influence of different physical parameters as, for example, permeability on the wellbore pressure is also considered. Speed-up results are considered in order to evaluate the performance of the parallel algorithms.</p>}, number={21}, journal={Revista Interdisciplinar de Pesquisa em Engenharia}, author={Werneck, Leonardo Figueira and Freitas, Mayksoel Medeiros de and Silva Júnior, Hilton Guaraldi da and de Souza, Grazione and Souto, Helio Pedro Amaral}, year={2017}, month={fev.}, pages={37–56} }
