In recent years, numerical tools increasingly have been used in conjunction with experiments to provide better insight into the flow characteristics of perforated cores and perforated well-scale formations. Several numerical studies on perforation fluid flow have been conducted for core scale. However, comprehensive details relating to the modeling of perforation-zone damage and thickness, flow directionality, debris mechanisms, and implications for cleanup have not been studied in detail. In addition, most computational fluid dynamics (CFD) studies have used traditional Navier-Stokes-based solvers. In this study, the authors have used a commercially available flow-simulation software based on the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) to calculate the complex flow and cleanup mechanisms around the perforation tunnel.
