Abstract

"A generalized mathematical model was developed for two-dimensional compressible fluid flow accounting for the effects of relative permeability capillary pressure, and gravity drainage in addition to the reservoir properties of rock heterogenity and reservoir geometry. The generalized model developed was applied to an aquifer gas storage reservoir in which vertical leakage occurred from the main reservoir to two adjacent overlaying zones. The experimental results of Thomas, et al. were utilized in applying the model to gas storage injection/withdrawal periods yielding reasonable results for the three layers"--Abstract, page ii.
