Abstract

It has been demonstrated, first by this laboratory and subsequently by other researchers, that the gas and condensate relative permeability can increase significantly by increasing rate contrary to the common understanding. There are now a number of correlations in the literature and commercial reservoir simulators accounting for the positive effect of coupling and the negative effect of inertia at near wellbore conditions. The available functional forms estimate the two effects separately and include a number of parameters, which should be determined using measurements at high velocity conditions. Measurements of gas-condensate relative permeability at simulated near wellbore conditions are very demanding and expensive.
