OUTLINE Darcy law Mathematical issues
Some models: Black-oil, Dead-oil,Buckley-Leverett……… Numerical approach 01/04/201701/04/2017

Darcy law Navier-Stokes equations: Darcy law:
is the matrix of permeability: porous media characteristic 01/04/201701/04/2017

Darcy law Continuum mechanics: at a REV located at :
porosity: ratio of void to bulk volume permeability: Darcy law REV 01/04/201701/04/2017

Darcy law Darcy law: empirical law (Darcy in 1856)
theoretical derivation: Scheidegger, King Hubbert, Matheron (heuristic) Tartar (homogeneization theory) Stokes Darcy law 01/04/201701/04/2017

Darcy law Poiseuille flow in a tube: single-phase, horizontal flow

Darcy law Poiseuille flow in a tube: unit: darcy 01/04/201701/04/2017

Darcy law Different scale: pore level: Stokes equations lab: measures
numerical cell: upscaling field: heterogeneity Darcy law Darcy law 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Extended Darcy law: relative permeability of phase p

Math issues For single-phase flows Darcy law leads to linear equation:
For multi-phase flow we recover nonlinear equtions: hyperbolic, degenerate parabolic etc….. 01/04/201701/04/2017

Math issues The mathematical model is a system of PDE with appropriate initial and boundary conditions the coefficients of the equations are poorly known stochastic approach geology + stochastic = geostatistic 01/04/201701/04/2017

A field…. 01/04/201701/04/2017

Math issues Data: wells : core, well-logging, well test
extension: geophysic, geology scale problems and uncertainty (geostatistic) 01/04/201701/04/2017

Uncertainty SPDE: These problems are difficult:
experimental design approach ‘ Grand projet incertitude ’ Industrial tools 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Hypotesis: three phases: 2 hydrocarbon phases and
water hydrocarbon system: 2 components a non-volatile oil a volatile gas soluble in the oil phase 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Hypotesis: components phases oil oil gas oil gas gas
water water 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model phases: water: wetting saturation
oil : partially wetting saturation gas : non wetting saturation 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Validity of the hypothesis: dry gas
depletion, immiscible water or gas injection oil with small volatility 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model PVT behaviour: formation volume factor where:
volume of a fixed mass at reservoir conditions volume of a fixed mass at stock tank 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Mass transfer between oil and gas phases:
: gas component in the oil phase : oil component in the oil phase functions of the oil phase pressure 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Thermo functions for oil: 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Mass balance: water oil gas 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model Extended Darcy law: relative permeability of phase p

Black-oil model Water: oil: gaz: 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model saturation: capillary pressures:
we obtain 3 equations with 3 unknowns: 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model:boundary conditions
Boundaries closed: no flux at the extreme cells aquifer: source term in corresponding cells wells: Dirichlet condition: bottom pressure imposed Neumann condition: production rate source terms for perforated cells (PI) 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model: initial conditions
capillary and gravity equilibrium pressure imposed in oil zone at a given depth oil pressure in all cells and then Pc curves 01/04/201701/04/2017

Black-oil model: theoretical results
