Multiphase Flow during CO2 Geo-Sequestration

Chapter
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

Abstract

Both quantitative and qualitative evaluations of multiphase flow in porous medium is necessary in order to understand the processes involved and optimum management of the underground reservoirs subjected to either production or injection of fluids. The flow of fluids through pipes and conduits is relatively easy to model. However, due to the complex nature of the geological porous medium, analysing multiphase flow through them involves complex formulation and cannot be described explicitly.

Keywords
