Volume 10, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 99-116


  The model-based optimization of the waterflooding process has found significant scope for improving the economic life-cycle performance of oil fields due to geological and economic uncertainties compared to conventional reactive strategies. This paper proposes a new frequency-based system identification ...  Read More

A Novel Approach to Measuring Water and Oil Relative Permeabilities in Two-phase Fluid Flow in Porous Media

Azadeh Mamghaderi; Behzad Rostami; Seyed Hamed Tabatabaie

Volume 7, Issue 2 , April 2018, , Pages 14-34


  In this study, direct laboratory measurements of unsteady-state imbibition test are used in a new approach to obtain relative permeability curves with no predetermined functionality assumptions. Four equations of continuity, Darcy’s law, cumulative oil production, and water fractional flow are ...  Read More
