This paper concerns about simple mathematical (proxy) models for determination of the reservoir pressure and productivity prediction. The purpose of this work is to remove some restrictions of the previously reported adaptive calculation scheme for a wider usability in the real oil fields. We consider standard approaches to account for the compressibility and mobility changes of the rock fluids during waterflood. Also, practical applications of the developed proxy reservoir models for rapid calculations of the pressure and saturation distributions to achieve better oil field management are briefly discussed.
