Fundamentals of Fluid Flow in Porous Media


Chapter 4

Immiscible Displacement


Fluid displacement processes require contact between the displacing and the displaced fluid. The movement of the interface between displacing and displaced fluids and the breakthrough time associated with the production of injected fluids at producing wells are indicators of sweep efficiency. This chapter shows how to calculate such indicators using the Buckley-Leverett theory.
