In order to simulate interaction of seismic waves with cavernous/fractured reservoirs the finite-difference technique based on locally refined in time and space grids is used. The need to use these grids is due to essentially different scales of heterogeneities in the reference medium and in the reservoir. Parallel computations are organized on the base of 3D Domain Decomposition into elementary subdomains in the both reference medium (coarse grid) and reservoir (fine grid). Each elementary subdomain is assigned to its specific Processor Unit forming two groups – for reference medium and for reservoir. The data exchange between PU within the same group is performed in a standard manner – by nonblocking iSend/iReceive commands. The data exchange between two groups is done simultaneously with coupling of coarse and fine grids and is controlled by specially designated master PU. Results of numerical simulation for a realistic model of the carbonate reservoir are presented and discussed.
