Specialists in the field of oil and gas such as reservoir engineers, geologists, and geophysicists have found that achieving optimal or maximum production returns is essential to the success of the oil industry and should be considered as one of the most important macroeconomic policies of the country. The need to improve the recovery of a large volume of residual oil and gas in hydrocarbon reservoirs, along with global competition for further  production, demands  reservoir management for planning in this area as well as an accurate determination of  the production strategy. Such special attention to these issues and the future of the development of related technologies will, thus, lead to the production of such resources and the targeted ones. A clearer and more accurate understanding of the flow of fluid in the porous environment during the harvesting of hydrocarbon reserves is one of the important issues in the steady production of the countrychr('39')s oil and gas industries. In this research, various technologies in simulating flow in a porous environment have been analyzed, yet the application of the superior technology for simulation of the Boltzmann network using X-ray tomography, having recently attracted attention of the scientific communities in the field of computational fluid dynamics, has been domenstrated. For this Purpose, the geometry of the porous medium was entered into a computational code using a text file, and the flow of the natural gas cavity was solved directly on 3D geometry using the Boltzmann grid model with multiple repositioning time. In this way, the permeability of the present porous media was calculated in a ratio of different pressures. The results of the simulation comply satisfactorily with the experimental and numerical results presented in the related technical texts.
