Volume of Fluid Simulations of Multiphase Flow through Fractures: Analysis of Individual Fractures for Application in Reservoir Scale Models

Dustin Crandall, Kambiz Nazridoust, Goodarz Ahmadi, Grant Bromhal, Duane Smith & Duane Smith
Geological Carbon Dioxide Sequestration requires a fundamental understanding of modeling multiphase flows in fractured media. Subsurface flow is highly dependent upon the rock structure within the flow domain, with high permeability and fractured regions dominating the transport of the fluids. Discrete-fracture simulators often assume the cubic law relationship for single phase flow through a smooth set of parallel plates, and with good reason. The number of fractures that need to be modeled at the reservoir...
