  3. Abstract:
  4. Capillary pressure is one of the most important parameters for reservoir engineering studies. Although different experimental methods are devised to measure capillary pressure, these methods do not represent the physics of fluid flow, which happens at reservoir conditions. Thus, it is attempted to extract the capillary pressure from spontaneous imbibition data, the common mechanism of oil production in water wet porous media. In this work, a new approach is developed to obtain the imbibition capillary pressure curve by using spontaneous water imbibition data in oil-water-rock systems. Comparison of calculated imbibition capillary pressure curves by the new approach with experimental values shows a good accordance with each other
