In order to study the effect of rock compressibility four rock compressibility values are defined in different scenarios and the other parameters such as reservoir conditions rock and fluidpropertiesarethesame.Theselectedrock compressibility values are given in table 2.
In general, all ILs are very incompressible media compared to the classical mineral oils--the compressibility of ILs is much lower than that of standard hydraulic mineral oil and even lower than that of water--5 x [10.sup.-10] [Pa.sup.-1] [8].
Nowadays, molecular compressibility was used to predict the speed of sound in some research [12-14]; a negative temperature correction coefficient is used to modify the influence of temperature on molecular compressibility; it is an effective solution to decrease prediction deviation when the numerical accuracy of molecular compressibility was required.
