Accurate field-scale simulations of foam enhanced oil recovery are challenging, due to the sharp transition between gas and foam. Hence, unpredictable numerical and physical behavior is often observed, casting doubt on the validity of the simulation results. In this paper, a thorough stability analysis of the foam model is presented to validate...

An enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) pilot test has multiple goals, among them to demonstrate oil recovery, verify the properties of the EOR agent in-situ, and provide the information needed for scale-up to an economic process. Given the complexity of EOR processes and the inherent uncertainty in the reservoir description, it is a challenge to...

An enhanced-oil-recovery pilot test has multiple goals, among them to verify the properties of the EOR agent in situ. Given the complexity of EOR processes and the inherent uncertainty in the reservoir description, it is a challenge to discern the properties of the EOR agent in situ. We present a simple case study to illustrate this challenge: a...

We apply adjoint-based optimization to a Surfactant-Alternating-Gas foam process using a linear foam model introducing gradual changes in gas mobility and a nonlinear foam model giving abrupt changes in gas mobility as function of oil and water saturations and surfactant concentration. For the linear foam model, the objective function is a...
