Gas EOR Project 6: Three-Phase Relative Permeabilities as a Function of Wettability and Saturation

Primary Investiagor: David DiCarlo

The goal of this project is to measure the relative permeability of oil in three-phase displacements over the complete saturation ranges. Experiments will be performed in cores of varying wettabilities, and the three-phase saturations will be measured in-situ using dual-energy CT scanning. We will obtain relative permeabilities and from these determine the connectivity and dominant flow mechanisms.
