    Abstract

    High pressure core flood experiments using gas condensate fluids in long sandstone cores are carried out. Steady-state relative permeability points are measured over a wide range of condensate to gas ratio's, with the velocity and interfacial tension (ITF) being varied between tests in order to observed the effect on relative permeability. As a result, a relative permeability rate effect for both gas and condensate phases is observed, with the relative permeability of both phases increasing with an increase in flow rate. The relative permeability rate effect is evident as the ITF increased by an order of magnitude, with the relative permeability of the gas phase reducing more than the condensate phase.
