The bottle test method that is currently used to estimate gelation only provides a qualitative description and also does not necessarily reflect what happens in a porous media. This paper aims to show a relationship between the permeability of a porous medium that has been injected with a pre gel polymer and the gelling state given by a bottle test. In this way a better estimation of the gel strength in the reservoir can be made.
