In interest of accurately modelling wellbore production in convective geothermal systems, we draw attention to two approaches to numerical simulation of crustal fluid flow. The historical ‘’strong’’ approach simulates the fluid mass conservation condition on a localised finite difference mesh approximation to poroelastic continua. [...]
