Time variability of reservoir parameters in water flooding has an effect on oilfield development rules. Meanwhile, time variability of different reservoir macro-parameters has certain synergetic relationship with each other. Based on microscopic network simulation and reservoir numerical simulation, a new simulation method is presented, which can describe the influence of reservoir parameters' synergetic time-variability on oilfield development rules both in macroscopic and microscopic scales. Microscopic network simulation can effectively simulate the impact of micro-parameters' variation on macro-parameters, thus a comprehensive model is built to reflect the variability of reservoir parameters. On the basis of considering time variability of porosity, permeability, and relative permeability in water flooding, an improved reservoir numerical simulator is established, which can effectively simulate the effect of reservoir parameters' synergetic variation on oilfield development rules.
