Fracture relative permeability revisited
Relative permeability is one of the most uncertain terms in multiphase flow through porous media. Therefore, such a basic parameter must be well uderstood to provide confidence in reservoir simulations. In a fractured reservoir, evaluation of relative permeability curves is complicated due to the nature of double porosity systems, where fractures develop a discontinuity in multiphase flow between adjacent matrix blocks. Fracture relative permeability is examined here with corresponding effects on fractured reservoir performance.
