This dissertation focuses on polymer flooding, as an example of an EOR process. Chemical floods such as polymer floods are EOR techniques intended to increase sweep and/or displacement efficiency. Even though the compatibility and the efficiency of the injected chemicals are thoroughly tested and validated in the laboratory, uncertainty still...

To date no efforts were published to (numerically) compute the pressure transients following shut-in for a fracture that during pumping was propagating at an arbitrary, not necessarily constant velocity; and to use these computations to systematically understand the physics (type curves) of pressure decline after shut-in for both very rapidly...

It is well known in the oil & gas industry that mature oil fields with a water drive produce increasing volumes of oily produced water which require treatment and efficient disposal. It is a major concern of all waterflood operations now in the industry, to adopt cost effective and environmentally sound water disposal systems. Re-injection...

Fracture network connectivity and aperture (or conductivity) distribution are two crucial features controlling flow behavior of naturally fractured reservoirs. The effect of connectivity on flow properties is well documented. In this paper, however, we focus here on the influence of fracture aperture distribution. We model a two-dimensional...

The process of depleting an oil reservoir can be poured into an optimal control problem with the objective to maximize economic performance over the life of the ?eld. Despite its large potential, life-cycle optimization has not yet found its way into operational environments. The objective of this thesis is to improve operational applicability...

Low salinity waterflooding (LSF) is a promising improved oil recovery (IOR) technique. The enhanced composition of injected water in LSF can change the wettability of the formation from oil-wet/ mixed-wet towards a more water-wet state. This leads to improved relative oil permeability (kro). The zeta potential, which is the electric potential at...

This thesis is concerned with upscaled models for waterflooded naturally fractured reservoirs (NFRs). Naturally fractured petroleum reservoirs provide over 20% of the world’s oil reserves and production. From the fluid-flow point of view, a fractured reservoir is defined as a reservoir in which a number of naturally occurring fractures have a...

In oil production waterflooding is a popular recovery technology, which involves the injection of water into an oil reservoir. Studies on model-based dynamic optimization of waterflooding strategies have demonstrated that there is a signifcant potential to increase life-cycle performance, measured in Net Present Value. However, in these studies...

Flow modeling in fractured reservoirs is largely confined to the so-called sugar cube model. Here, however, we consider vertically fractured reservoirs, i.e., the situation that the reservoir geometry can be approximated by fractures enclosed columns running from the base rock to the cap rock (aggregated columns). This article deals with the...
