Estimations of oil recovery from secondary or tertiary recovery processes require information about the flow characteristics of oil and other fluids present in the reservoir. When multiple fluids are present in the reservoir, they affect the flow of each other through the system. Relative permeability is a measurement of the flowing ability of a fluid in the presence of another fluid in a porous system.
Relative permeability curves have been generated for the Bluejacket sandstone reservoir located in Vernon County, Missouri. The relative permeability curves are based on core samples taken from the area.
