This chapter aims to summarise some of the results from this work and to present possible future directions for development. To summarise the work that has been carried out we have: carried out a model comparison to select the suitable thermodynamic models for the simulation of production of heavy oil; developed a robust and rapid isobaric isenthalpic flash algorithm, with modifications for calculations involving water; developed new methods for phase split calculation, with the framework extended to include both chemical reactions and non-isothermal phase split calculations; developed a method to co-solve the EoS with the equilibrium equations; and added a thermal calculation capability to an existing isothermal compositional reservoir simulator.
