Semester of Instruction
Objectives and Content
The course includes properties of porous media, fundamental petrophysical concepts and equations, absolute and relative permeability, wettability, capillary pressure, core analysis and well logging.
After the course PTEK211 the student will be able to:
- explain properties of porous media, with focus on oil and gas reservoirs
- describe multiphase flow in porous media with emphasis on oil production
- explain the impacts on fluid flow in porous rocks by parameters like permeability, pressure, temperature, capillary pressure, relative permeability and wettability
- present well logging principles
