Flow of Dilute Oil-In-Water Emulsions in Porous Media
The flow of dilute oil-in-water emulsions is of critical concern in produced water reinjection. Oil droplets and solids suspended in produced water are often hard to remove and are, therefore, reinjected into subsurface ...
Simulation and Experimental Studies of Foam for Enhanced Oil Recovery
Foams can improve sweep efficiency and oil recovery in miscible and steam enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) processes. For a successful application of foam in EOR processes, a simulator that can predict foam performance under ...
Simulation of Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery Processes
From an order of magnitude analysis of the importance of the possible mechanisms of microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) processes, it is shown that biosurfactants have the highest potential to recover residual oil from ...
High-Resolution Methods for Enhanced Oil Recovery Simulation
Enhanced oil recovery processes involve multicomponent, multiphase flow through porous media. Proper numerical modeling and flow prediction are essential for the successful design and evaluation of these processes. ...
A Succession-Of-States Model for the In-Situ Combustion Process
A two-dimensional succession-of-states multifront tracking model was developed for the in-situ combustion enhanced oil recovery process. The model approximates the flow domain in the reservoir as a series of regions separated ...
The Growth of Viscous Fingers
Viscous fingering is an undesirable characteristic of many enhanced oil recovery (EOR) displacements, both miscible and immiscible, resulting in poor displacement efficiency. The complexity of the process has limited ...
