Standing’s Relative PermeabilityCorrelation (Part 3—Imbibition Theory)


Relative permeability hysteresis

Relative Permeability Hysteresis

  • Drainage: Capillary

    and viscous forces

    operate in the same

    direction.

  • Imbibition: Capillary and viscous forces operate in opposite directions, resulting in a portion of the non-wetting phase becoming trapped and unable to move.


Calculation of non wetting phase relative permeability land

Calculation of Non-wetting Phase Relative Permeability (Land)

  • Basis: Correct for amount of “trapped” phase. Use resulting “free” saturation for the calculations.

  • Equations written for a gas-water two-phase system, gas is non-wetting phase. Applies oil-water system if it is strongly water-wet.


Trapped gas saturation

Trapped Gas Saturation


Hysteresis and trapping constant

Hysteresis andTrapping Constant

  • Determination of Sor,max

    • after Geffen et al.


Trapping constant example

Trapping Constant - Example

  • Consider Standing’s Eqs. 22 and 24.

  • At irreducible wetting phase saturation (drainage)


Trapping constant example1

Trapping Constant - Example

  • For the Geffen et al data, calculate the trapping constant, C, given the irreducible wetting (water) saturation, Siw=0.20


Trapping example

Soi=0.31

Sor0.23

Trapping Example

  • Given C=0.86, calculate Sor when Soi=0.31
