Downscaled Capillary Pressure and Relative Permeability of Small Cores for Network Model Validation

Olafuyi, A.O.; Cinar, Yildiray; Knackstedt, Mark; Pinczewski, Wolf Val


This paper presents the results of drainage capillary pressure and relative permeability measurements made on cores having different bulk volumes ranging from 0.5 to 12 cm3. The aim of the experiments was to provide reliable experimental data which can be used to validate the predictive value of micro-CT based network models for capillary pressure and relative permeability. The micro-CT based network models use realistic networks constructed from the X-ray images of the rock samples having a...[Show more]
