Alf is correct, in nearly all cases poor convergence is nearly always 
related to the data: aquifer not in equilibrium with the hydrocarbon 
zone, negative fluid compressibilities, etc. If you can share your model 
then I'll take a look. If not then if you send me the *.PRT, *.LOG and 
*.DBG files I'll have a quick look to see if there is anything obvious 
from these files.

Also are you getting?

Nobody  responded to my GitHub issue question "How Many Hours in a -nan 
Day? #2503 " - perhaps it was something of a "black-hole" to investigate 

I don't' have a general solution to this, but I have resolve a few cases 
of the above due to data inconsistencies.

Release 2020-04 is out, so perhaps you can try your model with the new
