Cross-linked polymer gel is widely used in the oil and gas industry to block high permeability conduits and reduce water cut. The complex nature of this fluid, especially regarding flow in porous media, makes its numerical simulation very time-consuming. This study presents an approach to designing an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model...

CO<sub>2</sub> sequestration and storage in deep saline aquifers is a promising technology for mitigating the excessive concentration of the greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. However, accurately predicting the migration of CO<sub>2</sub> plumes requires complex multi-physics-based numerical simulation approaches, which are prohibitively...

CO2 injection into deep saline aquifers has shown to be a feasible option, as for their large storage capacity under safe operational conditions. Previous studies have revealed that CO2 can be trapped in the subsurface by several mechanisms. Despite the major advances in studying these trapping mechanisms, their dynamic interactions in different...

Electromagnetic (EM) heating is an emerging method for storing renewable energy, such as photovoltaic solar and wind electric power, into aquifers. We investigate how the captured energy increases the temperature of a prototypical deep aquifer for a six-month period and then to which extent the stored energy can be recovered during the...

The efficiency of oil processes depends on the product of volumetric sweep and microscopic sweep. In oil recovery by steam injection the microscopic sweep is generally good; however, obtaining a good volumetric sweep can be challenging. This is caused by low density and viscosity of the injected steam combined with the reservoir heterogeneity...

We present the projection-based embedded discrete fracture model (pEDFM) for hexahedral corner-point grid (CPG) geometries, for the simulation of hydrothermal processes in fractured porous media. Unlike the previously-developed pEDFM for structured box grids, our new development allows for the modeling of complex geometries defined with...

Natural or induced fractures are typically present in subsurface geological formations. Therefore, they need to be carefully studied for reliable estimation of the long-term carbon dioxide storage. Instinctively, flow-conductive fractures may undermine storage security as they increase the risk of CO2 leakage if they intersect the CO2 plume. In...

Polymer flooding is a commercially viable chemical enhanced oil recovery (cEOR) method. It includes the injection of water-soluble polymers into a reservoir to improve the drive water viscosity and consequently to increase the sweep and displacement efficiency of the water. Despite the success in both laboratory and field applications, there are...

An algebraic dynamic multilevel (ADM) method for fully-coupled simulation of flow and heat transport in heterogeneous fractured geothermal reservoirs is presented. Fractures are modeled explicitly using the projection-based embedded discrete method (pEDFM), which accurately represents fractures with generic conductivity values, from barriers to...

Accurate simulation of multiphase flow in subsurface formations is challenging, as the formations span large length scales (km) with high-resolution heterogeneous properties. To deal with this challenge, different multiscale methods have been developed. Such methods construct coarse-scale systems, based on a given high-resolution fine-scale...

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...

The present paper addresses the multi-objective optimization of the filling stage of the Resin Infusion manufacturing process. The optimization focuses on the selection of an optimal temperature profile which addresses the tradeoff between filling time and the risk of impeding the flow of resin due to excessive curing. The methodology developed...

If secondary hydrocarbon recovery methods, like water flooding, fail because of the occurrence of viscous fingering one can turn to an enhanced oil recovery method (EOR) like the injection of foam. The generation of foam in a porousmedium can be described by a set of partial differential equations with strongly non-linear functions, which impose...

We present an algebraic dynamic multilevel method for multiphase flow in heterogeneous fractured porous media (F-ADM), where fractures are resolved at fine scale with an embedded discrete modelling approach. This fine-scale discrete system employs independent fine-scale computational grids for heterogeneous matrix and discrete fractures,...

This work presents a new discrete fracture model, namely the Projection-based Embedded Discrete Fracture Model (pEDFM). Similar to the existing EDFM approach, pEDFM constructs independent grids for the matrix and fracture domains, and delivers strictly conservative velocity fields. However, as a significant step forward, it is able to accurately...

In many oil fields, water is injected into a reservoir to displace oil to the production wells. During the injection process, oil is pushed by water towards production wells which have a lower pressure than the rest of the reservoir. If the reservoir is homogeneous, then a good sweep efficiency of the water flood process is expected. However,...

This paper introduces an Algebraic MultiScale method for simulation of flow in heteroge-neous porous media with embedded discrete Fractures (F-AMS). First, multiscale coarse grids are independently constructed for both porous matrix and fracture networks. Then, amap between coarse-and fine-scale is obtained by algebraically computing basis...

In this work, the non-linear behaviour of saturation transport equations in sequential implicit simulation strategy for multi-phase, immiscible and incompressible displacements are investigated. In reservoir simulation, use of explicit time schemes can lead to severe time-step size restrictions, specially when strong nonlinear terms exist. For...

Rahrah, M. (author)
Both in practice and in theory it is known that there are ‘injection points’ or preferential flow paths in the subsurface. At such points the soil absorbs significantly more water than at other depths on such a location. One of the reasons of this phenomenon is the heterogeneity of the subsurface. in this study a number of hypotheses were tested...

We present a tool that simultaneously measures the complex permittivity and the capillary pressure characteristics for multiphase flow. The sample holder is a parallel plate capacitor. A precision component analyzer is used to measure the impedance amplitude and phase angle as a function of frequency (1 kHz to 3 MHz). The complex impedance of...
