... additional data. This paper aims to provide more insight into such an approach. The results were obtained from two different investigations: First, we performed a set of numerical experiments using a flow simulator and different synthetic permeability fields. Then, we chose a field case to illustrate a...

.... Their results give rise to the investigation considered here. We are unaware of any prior investigation on this subject. Model The system considered is linear in x, of length L, and having a unit cross-sectional area normal to the x-direction. There are two plane sinks (wells), one at × =0, the...

... transport of solids. In this study, humidity and air density were measured and incorporated into the results. The use of Ottawa sand for laboratory investigations of pneumatic transport can yield erroneous results because of the size attrition realized in circulating the sand. To eliminate the problem with...

.... The plotmay therefore be used in a number of environmental investigations in thepetroleum industry. As an example, it was shown that a larger area, initiallythought to be contaminated by mercury as a consequence of oil and gasoperations, was in fact only marginally contaminated. The chondrite plot...

..., by reverse coning, continued production would increase the oil saturation and all relative permeability around the wellbore, thereby reducing the amount of free gas produced along with the oil. This paper describes a technical approach used by Husky engineers to investigate the merit of reverse...
