On the Interpretation of tracer experiments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Recently, two new developments appeared in the literature on modelling flow and transport in heterogeneous systems. The first one is the use of two different concentration variables namely, the resident and flux concentrations, in tracer studies. The second one involves representing the heterogeneity by means of a frequency disribution function for immobile phase size. Based on these developments, this work involves a classification of the solutions of transport equation in heterogeneous systems. It also demonstrates interpretation of tracer experiments in such systems. Distinguishing between the resident and flux concentration variables prevents the inconsistencies between theoretical solutions and actual conditions of ... continued below

Description

Recently, two new developments appeared in the literature on modelling flow and transport in heterogeneous systems. The first one is the use of two different concentration variables namely, the resident and flux concentrations, in tracer studies. The second one involves representing the heterogeneity by means of a frequency disribution function for immobile phase size. Based on these developments, this work involves a classification of the solutions of transport equation in heterogeneous systems. It also demonstrates interpretation of tracer experiments in such systems. Distinguishing between the resident and flux concentration variables prevents the inconsistencies between theoretical solutions and actual conditions of experiments and hence, allows correct interpretation of tracer return profiles. Representing heterogeneities by means of frequency distribution functions allows representing matrix blocks of various sizes likely to exist in a fractured reservoir.
