Rock Fluid Interaction

Session Chairpersons:

Vijay Kumar Shrivastava, Computer Modelling Group; David Brian Foo, Pure Energy Services Ltd.

The interplay between the reservoir rock and fluids, either native state or introduced by external means, can be a key control on ultimate reservoir performance. This session will share some key learnings in the area of fracture fluid penetration, including insights into liquid flow and EOR potential in unconventional reservoirs.
