The “PIK-OFP/EP” installation for studying core phase permeability (2 phases)

The “PIK-OFP/EP” filtration installation is designed to determine filtration, capacitive and electrical properties of core samples during one-, two-, and three-phase stationary and non-stationary filtration at reservoir conditions. The equipment is used to determine oil displacement coefficients by water/gas for evaluating effectiveness of increasing oil recovery physicochemical methods. Fluid filtration can be carried out both in forward and reverse directions.
