In this paper, we propose a numerical scheme for fluid models of magnetised plasmas. One important feature of the numerical scheme is that it should be able to handle the anisotropy induced by the magnetic field. In order to do so, we propose the use of the hybrid mimetic mixed (HMM) scheme for diffusion. This is combined with a hybridised variant of the Scharfetter-Gummel (SG) scheme for advection. The proposed hybrid scheme can be implemented very efficiently via static condensation. Numerical tests are then performed to show the applicability of the combined HMM-SG scheme, even for highly anisotropic magnetic fields.
