Transport of reservoir fines: a novel model for formation heterogeneity and particle heterogeneity

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearch

Abstract

Modeling transport of reservoir fines is of great importance for evaluating the damage of production wells and infectivity decline. The conventional methodology accounts for neither the formation heterogeneity around the wells nor the reservoir fines’ heterogeneity. We have developed an integral model incorporating the elliptic equation based on continuous time random walk and distributed filtration coefficients, respectively reflecting the influences of the formation heterogeneity around the wells and the reservoir fines’ heterogeneity. The novel methodology excels the classical advection dispersion equation in modeling the transport and the deposition of reservoir fines. It successfully predicts the unsymmetrical concentration profiles and the hyperexponential deposition in experiments.
