Estimation of Adsorption Parameters from Experimental Data

Placeholder Show Content


In this study, pressure transient tests in a steam filled core were carried out. Eight different rock samples were tested and the adsorption isotherm parameters were estimated by using nonlinear regression. Good matches to the pressure transient curves were obtained and from them the adsorption isotherm parameters were inferred. Preliminary results show that the nonlinear regression method can be applied to adsorption related geothermal reservoir studies. It was also, found that differences in reservoir permeability and porosity did not affect the characteristic shape of the isotherm curves derived by using this estimation procedure.
