Mechanical and Hydraulic Behavior of Acid Fractures - Experimental Studies and Mathematical Modeling
Acid fracturing is a well stimulation method commonly used in carbonate reservoirs. In the process, an HCl solution, sometimes viscosified or emulsified, is injected into the formation above the fracture pressure to ...
Least-Squares Finite Element Method For Hydrocarbon Transport In Porous Media
Mathematical models for the transport of constituent components of a multicomponent system in a porous medium play an important part in petroleum reservoir analysis and production. The success of such models is dependent ...
An Investigation of Countercurrent Imbibition Recovery in Naturally Fractured Reservoirs With Experimental Analysis and Analytical Modeling
Naturally fractured reservoirs occur worldwide containing potentially economic and strategic fluids such as gas, oil and water. Modeling of naturally fractured reservoirs has advanced considerably because of the desire ...
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Fluid Displacements in Porous Media
Measurement of the in-situ fluid saturation distributions is essential and important in laboratory coreflooding experiments in order to correctly evaluate the fluid displacement mechanisms and processes. Nuclear magnetic ...
New Dual Porosity Thermal Simulator for Steam Injection in Naturally Fractured Reservoirs
A distinguishing characteristic of naturally fractured reservoirs is that fractures have high permeability with very small pore volume while the matrix blocks between fractures have low permeability with large pore volume. ...
Characterization and Remediation of Aquifers Contaminated by Nonaqueous Phase Liquids Using Partitioning Tracers and Surfactants
The main objectives of this work were the development of the partitioning interwell tracer test for estimation of nonaqueous phase liquid (NAPL) saturation in saturated porous media, performance assessment of surfactant ...
