ABSTRAKT

A three-dimensional isothermal transient two-phase flow model of gas and liquid in a low permeability anisotropic porous medium has been developed from the general mass and momentum balances. A numerical solution was obtained using the modified CFX-Flow3D code. The simulation was applied to the laboratory experiment and predicted two-phase flow behavior. Different constitutive equations together with several anisotropic permeabilities were considered. Calculated two-phase flow rates reflect the sensitivity of fluid flow to gas and liquid permeability in anisotropic tight sand porous media. The proposed numerical procedure offers an efficient and economical tool to evaluate the anisotropic effect of gas and liquid flow in different types of formations subjected to in situ stress environments.
