Advancements in Digital Rock Physics: Density Functional Hydrodynamics for Heterogeneous Rocks
20 June 2019 – SPWLA Saudi Arabia Chapter conducted the monthly technical luncheon, Denis Klemin from Schlumberger gave a talk titled” Advancements in Digital Rock Physics: Density Functional Hydrodynamics for Heterogeneous Rocks”. The first part of the talk started with discussing two main aspects of Digital Rock (DR) technology (imaging & modeling) and highlighted the need for general purpose pore-scale modeling solution capable to perform 3D pore-scale multiphase multicomponent flow simulation that accounts for interfacial surface tension, surface tension at contact with solid surfaces, moving contact lines, dynamic changes of topology interfaces, complex phase composition, phase transitions, phase rheology, EOR agents. The second part of the talk was focused on the problem of numerical modeling of fluid transport in heterogeneous pore systems. This event was well attended.
