Abstract

A precise knowledge of permeability is crucial for accurate simulation of reservoir performance and enhanced reservoir management. At present permeability is measured by taking a core sample to a lab and measuring flow rates, but this is both expensive and less accurate because there can be significant problems with measurement error, and the value is measured only at the point of the sample. The best way to resolve this problem is to obtain in-situ permeability with the aid of reservoir characteristics by means of solving differential equations which govern the fluid flow in porous media.
