Volume Conservation of the Intermediate Phase in Three-Phase Pore-Network Models

Sheppard, Adrian; Arns, Ji-Youn; Knackstedt, Mark; Pinczewski, Wolf Val


Quasi-static rule-based network models used to calculate capillary dominated multi-phase transport properties in porous media employ equilibrium fluid saturation distributions which assume that pores are fully filled with a single bulk fluid with other fluids present only as wetting and/or spreading films. We show that for drainage dominated three-phase displacements in which a non-wetting fluid (gas) displaces a trapped intermediate fluid (residual oil) in the presence of a mobile wetting...[Show more]
