Relative permeability from unsteadystate displacements with capillary pressure included
A semianalytic method for calculation of relative permeabilities from unsteadystate displacement data is developed. The method is based on the simultaneous solution of the fractionalflow equation and an integrodifferential equation, derived from the materialbalance and Darcy equations for immiscible displacement of two incompressible phases, including the capillary pressure by use of various volumetric relationships. This method for calculating twophase relative permeabilities from unsteadystate displacement data is not restricted to the highflowrate experimental conditions used to overcome capillary and effects. Removal of this restriction allows the analysis of lowpermeability cores with water and oil where the flow rates are low andmore » 
Steadystate and unsteadystate twophase relative permeability hysteresis and measurements of threephase relative permeabilities using imaging techniques
The objective of this work is to improve determination of twophase and threephase relative permeabilities by the use of saturation imaging techniques. The first part of the paper reports on steadystate and unsteadystate relative permeability experiments performed on restoredstate carbonate reservoir cores. The aim was to study how relative permeability test methodology impacts relative permeability curves. hysteresis and residual oil saturations in these intermediatewet cores. Refined oil was used. Significant hysteresis was observed in both the unsteadystate water and oil relative permeabilities. The characteristics of the unsteadystate water relative permeabilities imply that viscous instabilities were present during the waterflood. Centrifugemore » 
Adaptation of the black oil simulator to twophase and threephase relative permeability determination using unsteadystate technique. Status report, Project BE1, Task 4
The development of an unsteadystate procedure for determining threephase relative permeability curves requires the characterization of the relative permeability curves by adjustable parameters and the adaption of a nonlinear leastsquares procedure to the finitedifference approximation of the BuckleyLeverett threephase flow equation including capillary pressure. A method was developed to represent threephase relative permeability data by a functional form based on experimental data. Threephase relative permeability experimental data reported by previous investigators were represented by relative permeability functions. These functions express the relative permeability of a given phase to all fluid saturations (three saturations in the case of threephase flow) bymore »
