Theoretical investigation of the effect of membrane properties of nanoporous reservoirs on the phase behavior of confined light oil
This theoretical study is an effort to probe the effect of semi-permeable membrane properties of a nanoporous medium on hydrocarbon phase behavior in tight-oil reservoirs. It is assumed that the fluids stored in a nanoporous reservoir are divided into two parts: one part that is already filtered and can flow to a production well without compositional change, and another part that replenishes the filtered fluid according to the filtration efficiency of the nanoporous medium and the prevailing filtration pressure. This selective hydrocarbon transport leads to a pressure difference between the ...
