Unsteady State Relative Permeability Curves Derived from Saturation Data Spatially and Temporally Resolved Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


Relative permeability curves describe the displacement of immiscible fluids in rock samples. These curves, ordinarily time-consuming and difficult to measure, are critical for petroleum reservoir management. They help guide decision-making and permit optimal petroleum recovery. Spatial and temporal measurements of fluid content are essential for investigation of displacement phenomena. Pure phase-encoding with SE-SPI provides spatial and temporal proton density of fluids sufficiently precise to permit evaluation of partial derivatives. This quantitative information can be introduced in governing equations for immiscible displace-ment of fluids to give important properties: capillary dispersion, 퐷푐 and oil fractional flow, 푓표 which contain relative permeability information.
