A comparison of simple upscaling models with multisupport permeability data measured on a block of Berea Sandstone

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A specially designed minipermeameter test system, termed the Multisupport Permeameter (MSP), has been developed for direct physical investigation of permeability upscaling. The unique feature of this instrument is its ability to acquire permeability data at multiple sample supports subject to consistent boundary conditions and flow geometries. This device has been employed to physically investigate the permeability upscaling characteristics of a block of Berea Sandstone. Results reveal a number of consistent and distinct trends relating key summary statistics to changes in sample support. Comparisons are drawn between trends in the sample mean measured on the Berea Sandstone and that predicted by ... continued below

The unique feature of this instrument is its ability to acquire permeability data at multiple sample supports subject to consistent boundary conditions and flow geometries. This device has been employed to physically investigate the permeability upscaling characteristics of a block of Berea Sandstone. Results reveal a number of consistent and distinct trends relating key summary statistics to changes in sample support. Comparisons are drawn between trends in the sample mean measured on the Berea Sandstone and that predicted by three theoretical upscaling models representing three common but different approaches to modeling permeability upscaling.
