Experimental measurement and numerical modeling of multiphase flow in Middle Bakken
Relative permeability is an extremely useful measure of complex multiphase fluid flow in a porous media, and much effort has been devoted by researchers to determine the factors that control relative permeability. Nevertheless, detailed experimental data especially for unconventional cores is scant in literature, which motivated this research. Specifically, this dissertation addresses and presents the relative permeability end points measured in two Middle Bakken formation cores for three different processes: oil-displacing-water, water-displacing-oil, and gas-displacing-oil using a steady-state ...
