The generalized Forchheimer flows are studied for slightly compressible fluids in porous media with time-dependent Dirichlet boundary data for the pressure. No restrictions are imposed on the degree of the Forchheimer polynomial. We derive, for all time, the interior L (L ∞} -estimates for the pressure, its gradient and time derivative, and the interior L 2 L 2 -estimates for its Hessian. The De Giorgi and Ladyzhenskaya-Uraltseva iteration techniques are used taking into account the special structures of the equations for both pressure and its gradient. These are combined with the uniform Gronwall-type bounds in establishing the asymptotic estimates when time tends to infinity.
