PGE 323L HW#4 due April 9, 2009 Pope 1. The water injection rate during a water flood will in general vary because of a non-unit mobility ratio as well as for other reasons. Assuming the pressure at the injection well is constant and the pressure at the production well is constant, the water injection rate will go down if M is less than 1 and up if M is greater than 1 all other factors being constant. Calculate and plot the water injection rate as a function of time for mobility ratios of 0.1, 1 and 10. You can use the spreadsheet posted on Bb as a starting point for this calculation. 2. Assume you are given several typical core plugs from a typical reservoir core to use

Unformatted text preview: for relative permeability measurements. Specify the experimental conditions needed to measure the water and oil relative permeability for both steady state and unsteady state methods. For example, you need to specify the injection rates for the water and oil for each steady state fractional flow measurement. The answers to this question will be different for each of you since you will use different data e.g. oil viscosity. Discuss and explain all of your data and calculations with appropriate supporting plots. 3. Discuss and explain the difference between the application of Buckley-Leverett calculations on the laboratory scale and the field scale....
