The competitiveness of the energy impact for common industrial gases (CH4, N2, Air and CO2) in porous media has been determined through an extensive and rigorous experimental approach. Fluid flow through porous media involves an energy continuum. The energy interactions could be due to either or both geological structures and contact with other pore fluids. Some authors have characterised gas behaviour for permeability, velocity, flow rate, and flow regime. However, there is a shortage of studies that explicitly qualifies and quantifies the characterisation of energy possession and energy loss for gases permeating porous system. Thus, this research has selected these two quantities as objective functions for experimental investigation.
