Effective use of effective permeability Academic Article uri icon


  • Effective permeability can be considered as an engineering concept. Permeability is commonly used to model the continuity of sands, the continuity of barriers, and fluid flow around barriers. Each of these flow patterns provide different elements of a reservoir characterization, and require distinct calculations. The superiority of this approach to a conventional single definition of permeability is demonstrated with detailed geologic models of the two turbidite reservoirs of the Magnus field.
