This book provides a thorough analysis of the fluid transport properties of rocks and the rock-fluid interactions that influence the flow of fluids. It provides research engineers, field engineers, and students with the theories, mathematical concepts, and methods for measuring and testing the properties of rocks and fluid flow. This book reviews the origin, composition, and geology of sedimentary rocks and their interstitial fluids. It also examines the important role they play in reservoir engineering. References at the end of each chapter allow for further, in-depth study. Chapters concentrate on the specific theories and mathematics of rock and fluid interactions. The petrophysical properties are especially important in the planning and design of reservoir development. You'll find complete coverage of electrical, capillary pressure, and fluid transport properties. The transport of particles in porous media and the effects of mechanical stress on fluid flow properties are also described. This book supplies detailed laboratory methods for the measurement of petrophysical fluid flow parameters with discussions of equipment, procedures, and calculations. The book is designed for classroom use, and each chapter includes examples and problems.
