The paper is presented as a discussion of the work of Simon and Kelsey (PA 135, 183, and PA 152, 107) on the use of capillary tube networks in reservoir performance studies. The author believes that calculation of oil recovery by the method outlined by Simon and Kelsey will give predictions that are too optimistic for reservoir- scale flooding processes, particularly when the mobility ratio is unfavorable. The reason for this is that the networks are too small to permit proper scaling of… CONTINUE READING
