Foam increases sweep efficiency during gas injection in enhanced oil recovery (EOR)<br/>processes by reducing gas mobility. In fact, foam is the only EOR technology that is<br/>able to fight against both gravity segregation and geological heterogeneity. Surfactant Alternating Gas, or SAG, is the preferred method to place foam into the reservoir...

Foam has unique microstructure in pore networks and reduces gas mobility significantly, which improves considerably the sweep efficiency of gas injection. Foam injection is thus regarded as a promising enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technology. One key to success of foam EOR is foam stability in presence of oil. This thesis seeks to understand...

It has been estimated that 17% of the recovered hydrocarbon exergy in oil fields [1]is spent on fluid handling and recovery costs. Therefore, improving the efficiency of oil production can give an some contribution to more efficient energy usage and therefore minimizing to some extent the carbon footprint. By way of example we present in this...

We present a CT coreflood study of foam, both pre-generated and generated in-situ, displacing oil, as a function of oil type and saturation. Foam generation and propagation are reflected through sectional pressure measurements. Dual-energy CT imaging monitors in-time phase saturations. With an oil less harmful to foam (hexadecane), injection...

This paper probes the transport of CO2 soluble surfactant for foaming in porous media. We numerically investigate the effect of surfactant partitioning between the aqueous phase and the gaseous phase on foam transport for subsurface applications when the surfactant is injected in the CO2 phase. A 2-D reservoir simulation is developed to quantify...

A laboratory study of principal immiscible gas flooding schemes is reported. Very well-controlled experiments on continuous gas injection, water-alternating-gas (WAG) and alkaline–surfactant–foam (ASF) flooding were conducted. The merits of WAG and ASF compared to continuous gas injection were examined. The impact of ultra-low oil–water (o/w)...

This paper deals with on line viscosity measurements using integrated circuit technology, and is building on a previous paper on the use radio frequency identifier (RFID) technology for determining dielectric coefficients. It is asserted that the progress in RFID technology and integrated circuits, in particular in micro–electro–mechanical...

The current situation with green gas emission requires the development of low carbon energy solutions. However, a significant part of the modern energy industry still relies on fossil fuels. To combine these two contradictory targets, we investigate a strategy based on a combination of CO2 sequestration with Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in the...

In the past decades, several EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) techniques have been developed to increase the amount of oil recoverable from a reservoir. Among these techniques, polymer flooding consists in the injection of a solution of water and polymer into the reservoir, and it is performed in order to lower the mobility of injected water. A...

Hypothesis Multiphase flow through porous media is important in a number of industrial, natural and biological processes. One application is enhanced oil recovery (EOR), where a resident oil phase is displaced by a Newtonian or polymeric fluid. In EOR, the two-phase immiscible displacement through heterogonous porous media is usually governed...

Crude oil has been an important source of energy for several decades now. Upon discovery of a crude oil reservoir until its abandonment, typically the oil recovery process can be classified in three stages. The primary and the secondary stage involve utilizing and maintaining reservoir pressure to recover oil respectively. The tertiary, or the...

The Dutch Government is aiming for a CO2 neutral energy supply in 2050; this requires a transition from using energy from fossil fuels to using renewable energy sources. Decline in oil production in the Netherlands occurs in an epoch with an increased interest in geothermal heat production as an alternative source of energy. In the present study...

The objective of this study is to discover a synergistic effect between foam stability in bulk and micro-emulsion phase behaviour to design a high-performance chemical system for an optimized alkaline–surfactant–foam (ASF) flooding for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The focus is on the interaction of ASF chemical agents with oil in the presence...

Since the 1950s, numerical models are widely used in reservoir simulators to predict and optimize oil recovery from petroleum reservoirs. Commercial simulators typically combine multiphase porous media flow models with a separate module for the transport of tracers. By decoupling flow and transport, the transport equation can be solved using a...

The main scope of the work related to the physical and dynamical processes associated with the injection of carbonated water in porous media. Carbonated water flooding is an alternative for traditional CO2 flooding. Both methods have the potential to recover any oil left behind after primary and secondary recovery while storing CO2 at the same...

Recent developments in Radio Frequency (800 MHz–1000 MHz) Identification (RFID) devices suggest that it is possible to use them for wireless laboratory measurements of the dielectric coefficients (or compositions) of fluid mixtures with possible spin-off for their use in the petroleum engineering practice. The advantage of RFID devices is...

Non-Newtonian foam flow in a reservoir can be modeled numerically by discretization of the corresponding analytical formulas. The injection of foam is compared to the injection of water by comparing the injection pressures, which is represented as a dimensionless pressure rise at the injection well. The model first applies the forward-difference...

The partitioning inter-well tracer test (PITT) is a method to determine average oil saturation between an injector-producer pair. Tracer tests can be used to quantify incremental oil recovery in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) pilots and for reservoir surveillance purposes. This study provides a sensitivity analysis of the inter-well tracer test,...
