Absolute Permeability

Absolute permeability is an ability to flow fluid through a permeable rock when only one type of fluid is in the rock pore spaces.  The absolute permeability is used to determine relative permeability of fluids flowing simultaneously in a reservoir.


Darcy’s equation is widely used in an oil field to measure flow in porous media and the Darcy’s linear flow equation is shown below;

Darcy's equation Continue reading
