Correlations for Viscosity of Heavy Oil?

Yordi Asks PERM: Hello, In this moment we have many problems with properties of fluid because the oils have high viscosity  (4000 to 10000 cP at Temperature of reservoir). All  equations of viscosity have two parameters (density or API and Temperature) For example the correlation Beal This correlation has application in light oils but in [...]

Relative Permeability Curves for Nanofluids?

Fahad Asks PERM: Hello, Thanks for your assistance, my question is, how can we generate a relative permeability curve during laboratory core flooding tests. Suppose I want to see the effect of nanofluids in altering my core wettability, how can I generate the relative curves for both the base fluid (brine alone) and the nanofluids [...]

Thermal Conductivity Testing Max Temperature Questions

Patrick Asks PERM: Hello, Thank you for the information on thermal conductivity testing. I have a few additional questions  if you don't mind: Can you perform thermal conductivity tests over various temperature ranges, and if so, what is your upper limit for temperature? (The big problem is in testing above 100°C because the connate water [...]

MICP & Permeability Question?

Stephen Asks PERM: Hello, When conducting MICP analysis, I had always assumed that mercury was the non-wetting phase and air was the wetting phase.  However, it the sample is evacuated of air prior to mercury injection, what is the wetting phase? If the relative permeability to mercury (or HC) is zero at 100% saturation of the [...]

Can two fluids of differing densities mix in porous media?

Fran Asks PERM: Hello, I've been out of school for 40 years but once thought I knew a lot about MVTs (Mississippi Valley Type Lead/Zinc Deposits). We operated under a hypothesis that two fluids were involved: a metalliferous basinal brine and a sulphurous trap in a dolostone 'reef'. However we were constrained to believe that two [...]

Understanding Wettability Testing Issues for Carbonate and Shale Reservoirs?

Sanja Asks PERM: Hello, I would like to have better understanding on contact angle and wetting properties for both shale and carbonate reservoirs. I am a little unfamiliar with the testing. Can you please advise? Thank you, Sanja Dr. Jonathan Bryan from PERM Answers: Hi Sanja, To get wettability data we can run several different tests. [...]
