B014 MACROSCOPIC SIMULATION OF THREE PHASE FLOW USING CONSISTENT PORE- LEVEL MODEL RELATIVE PERMEABILITIES AND CAPILLARY PRESSURES Abstract 1 In this paper we perform 1D macroscopic simulations using theoretical three phase relative permeabilities and capillary pressures (3PRPs and 3PCPs) based on simple pore-scale models. These 3PRP models were used to perform a range of 1D three phase macroscopic simulations where “low” and “high” viscosity gas has been injected into a system at constant oil and water saturation. No trapped saturations were allowed in these model calculations in order to clarify the structure of the saturation profiles and the phase paths
