Abstract

Oil-water relative permeability and capillary pressure of a water-wet digital core are computed using the finite-volume/volume of fluid method and mimicking traditional laboratory steady-state experiments carried out on a water saturated sample. Commercial software is used for immiscible multiphase fluid flow simulations, carried out on a low-cost multicore workstation, and the porescale data are upscaled to derive relative permeability and capillary pressure curves as function of water saturation. The digital sample is obtained by high resolution X-ray computed tomography scanning. [Received: March 13, 2013; Accepted: June 25, 2013]
