In this paper we develop and analyze several preconditioners for the linear systems arising from discretized poroelasticity problems. The preconditioners include one block preconditioner for the two-field Biot model and several preconditioners for the classical three-field Biot model. We manage to analyze these different preconditioners under a same theoretical framework and show that all of them are uniformly optimal with respect to material and discretization parameters. Numerical tests demonstrate the robustness of these preconditioners.
