PTE310 Transport Processes Through Porous Media

[3–0, 3 cr.]

Laboratory study of fluid flow through porous media as related to the reservoir system; introduction to transport processes; properties of porous/fluid-saturated rocks; capillarity effects; single-phase and multiphase flow through porous media; diffusion and dispersion, miscible displacement, heat transfer; fluid flow in permeable reservoir rocks as applied to subsurface engineering problems.

Prerequisite: PTE200 Introduction to Petroleum Engineering, MTH206 Calculus IV, MTH304 Differential Equations and MEE241 Dynamics.
