A mathematical model that describes a partial differential equation with boundary, internal and initial conditions was developed in the article, to study the gas-dynamic parameters of the gas filtration process in a porous medium under isothermal conditions. The study was performed based on the reviews of research works related to mathematical modeling in recent years. Computational experiments (CE) were conducted on a computer to determine the response of the main parameters on the process of gas filtration in a porous medium on the basis of the developed mathematical tool (model, numerical algorithm, and software). The results of numerical calculations were presented in the form of tables and graphical objects for the purpose of developing oil and gas fields and increasing oil and gas recovery. With the analysis of the numerical calculations performed, it was established that when the parameters and properties of gas filtration are considered as functions of pressure, then the process of gas filtration in porous media can be adequately described, as a whole, and it correctly reflects the main point of the object under research. It could be concluded that with the mathematical tool developed, it became possible to conduct a comprehensive study of the process of gas filtration in a porous medium.
