Since industrial revolution, due to the increasing demand of energy, anthropogenic emissions in the atmosphere are constantly growing. The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicted a 57% increase of energy demand from 2004 to 2030 (IEA, 2004) of which, 85% consists of fossil fuels. Actions need to be taken in order to mitigate CO2 emissions...

From a system-theoretical point of view and for a given configuration of wells, there are only a limited number of degrees of freedom in the input–output dynamics of a reservoir system. This means that a large number of combinations of the state variables (pressure and saturation values) are not actually controllable and observable from the...

The shallow marine subsurface is explored for various engineering purposes e.g. constructing installations and platforms, laying pipelines and dredging for sand. Knowledge of the soil properties is essential to minimize the risks involved with these offshore activities. Energy resources in the form of gas hydrates and hydrocarbon reservoirs are...

As geophysicists we are interested in the capabilities of electromagnetic methods for exploration, characterization, and monitoring of the subsurface. For frequencies below 1 MHz, the electromagnetic field is primarily diffusive, rendering the method very little resolving power. For this reason the resistivity values of layered structures cannot...

Sedimentary basins form in a range of large-scale tectonic settings involving extensional, compressional or lateral movements. The dynamics of the basin infill are controlled by driving mechanisms such as tectonics, climate and eustatic control. The created accommodation space in the basin is filled by sediments that formed by erosion in the...

Coupled seismic and electromagnetic wave propagation is studied theoretically and experimentally. This coupling arises because of the electrochemical double layer, which exists along the solid-grain/fluid-electrolyte boundaries of porous media. Within the double layer, charge is redistributed, creating an excess electrical charge in the fluid...

The interface-wave impedance and ellipticity are wave attributes that interrelate the full waveforms as observed in different components. For each of the fluid/elastic-solid interface waves, i.e., the pseudo-Rayleigh (pR) and Stoneley (St) waves, the impedance and ellipticity are found to have different functional dependencies on Young’s modulus...

This paper analyzes traveling wave profiles possessing an internal resonance point for a class of systems of partial differential equations describing oxidation and vaporization of liquid fuel in a porous medium when an oxidizer (air) is injected. It is shown that the resonance is characterized by a saddle point of an associated vector field...

We measured the electric parameters for four different configurations of unconsolidated homogeneous and layered sands as a function of frequency, water saturation, and salinity under fluid flow conditions. Our objective is to determine if the effect of heterogeneities at scales much smaller than the skin depth can be captured by introducing...

We distinguish between trivial and nontrivial differences in retrieving the real or imaginary parts of the Green's function. Trivial differences come from different Green's function definitions. The energy and Lagrangian forms constitute nontrivial differences. Magnetic noise sources suffice to extract the quasistatic electromagnetic-field Earth...

Chemical enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is relatively expensive due to the high cost of the injected chemicals such as surfactants. Excessive use of these chemicals leads to processes that are not economically feasible. Therefore, optimizing the volume of these injected chemicals is of extreme importance. We intend to maximize the long-term...

The last few years there has been a growing number of body-wave observations in noise records. In 1973 Vinnik conjectured that P-waves would even be the dominant wavemode, at epicentral distances of about 40 degrees and onwards from an oceanic source. At arrays far from offshore storms, surface waves induced by nearby storms would not mask the...

n conventional marine acquisition surveys the time intervals between the firing of successive sources are large enough to avoid interference in time. To obtain an efficient survey, the spatial source sampling is therefore often (too) large. How- ever, much attention has been drawn recently to blended ac- quisition designs, where sources are shot...

At the fluid/porous-medium interface the pseudo-Rayleigh (pR) and pseudo-Stoneley (pSt) waves exist. The relation with the corresponding poles in the slowness plane is not unambiguous, depending on the choice of branch cuts. For a point-force excitation, the far-field Green’s functions are computed using vertical branch cuts (method I) implying...

The method of characteristics, or fractional-flow theory, is extremely useful in understanding complex Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes and in calibrating simulators. One limitation has been its restriction to Newtonian rheology except in rectilinear flow. Its inability to deal with non-Newtonian rheology in polymer and foam EOR has been a...

A full-waveform seismoelectric numerical model incorporating the directivity pattern of a pressure source is developed. This model provides predictions of coseismic electric fields and the electromagnetic waves that originate from a fluid/porous-medium interface. An experimental setup in which coseismic electric fields and interface responses...

The methodology of surface?wave retrieval from ambient seismic noise by crosscorrelation relies on the assumption that the noise field is equipartitioned. Deviations from equipartitioning degrade the accuracy of the retrieved surface?wave Green's function. A point?spread function, derived from the same ambient noise field, quantifies the...
