Material Balance (MBAL Software) is a software used for efficient reservoir development and helps the engineer better define reservoir drive mechanisms and hydrocarbon volumes. Oil and gas are pushed from the reservoir to the bottom of the well and then to the surface by the natural forces of the reservoir. In this paper, the types of natural drive...

There are many known enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods and every method has its criteria to use it. Some of those methods are gas injection such as CO2 injection, N2 and hydrocarbon gas injection. Where the CO2 has been the largest contributor to global EOR. Gas injection can be classified into two main types; continues gas injection (CGI) and wa...

The Libyan Iron and Steel Company (LISCo) is considered one of the largest industrial companies with capacity is about 1,324,000 tons of liquid steel annually by direct reduction of iron pellets using local natural gas. One of the most difficult problems facing the management is the optimal use of its resources and production capacity needed to cov...

Laboratory tests and field applications shows that the salinity of water flooding could lead to significant reduction of residual oil saturation. There has been a growing interest with an increasing number of low-salinity water flooding studies. However, there are few quantitative studies on seawater composition change and it impact on increasing o...

The greater demand for crude oil, the increased difficulty of discovering new reservoirs, and the desire to reduce dependence on imports have emphasized the need for enhanced recovery methods capable of economically producing the crude remaining in known reservoirs. Oil recovery from oil reservoirs may be improved by designing the composition and s...

The present paper summarizes a laboratory study to comparethe effect of sea-water with different crude oils, temperature,and aging time on oil recovery in carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. The sandstoneand carbonate cores were submersedin the brine solution and then placedin the oven with 70oC to simulate realistic reservoir conditions. The seawa...

Re-injected produced water into sandstone reservoir at the initial stage is to maintain reservoir pressure, replace produced oil, and provide for the recovery of oil by water displacement. Water injection essentially increases the rate of oil field development and in many cases permits increased oil recovery. This paper demonstrates a successful si...

Microemulsion phase behavior is the most important phenomenon related to any type of chemical enhanced oil recovery (EOR) using surfactant. An EOR process in which a small amount of surfactant is added to an aqueous fluid injected to sweep the reservoir. The presence of surfactant reduces the interfacial tension between the oil and water phases to...

More than 50% of the known petroleum reserves are stuck in carbonate reservoirs, which can be divided into limestone, chalk and dolomite. On average, the oil recovery from carbonates is below 30% due to low water wetness, natural fractures, low permeability, and inhomogeneous rock properties. Therefore, there is increasing interest to improve oil r...

Full-text available
The contact angle of rock/fluid systems plays an important role in oil recovery processes as it determines the wettability of the rock. In thermal oil recovery such as that of hot-water injection, the elevated reservoir temperature has been found to affect the contact angle. Yet, studies on the contact angle of steam/oil/rock systems have not been...
Thesis
For more than a century, steam injection has been widely used as the most popular thermal recovery method for heavy oil in sandstone reservoirs, because this method increases oil production by reducing its viscosity and residual saturation in the swept zone of the reservoirs. However, raising the reservoir temperature does not only change the fluid...
Article
Full-text available
Steam injection in heavy oil reservoirs does not only change the fluid properties, but also affects the interfacial tension of aqueous phase/hydrocarbon and the wettability of sand/hydrocarbon systems. Understanding the alteration of those properties is crucial for a successful steam injection, and it is expected to play an important role in heavy...
Patent
It is recognized that a wide variety of experimental techniques have been used to investigate the interfacial properties of crude oil on reservoir rock surface and between immiscible fluid phases in brine/crude oil/rock systems ( such as hot-water injection), while the interfacial properties of steam/heavy oil/rock systems (such as steam injection)...
Article
Full-text available
For about a century, steam injection has been widely used as the most popular thermal recovery method for heavy-oil in sandstone reservoirs. In order to achieve higher recovery efficiency, which corresponds to the lowest possible value of residual oil saturation and economic success of steam injection projects, an accurate laboratory measurement of...

In steam-flood projects, injected steam does not only change fluid properties, but also affects particle and porous media properties by rock surface processes such as rock wettability change. It may be described in a simple case as follows: the pore in a sandstone formation is naturally water-wet, at high temperature condition, in which the residua...

Steamflood has been performed successfully since the 1950's in several fields worldwide. Although being considered successful, it still has problems associated with its mechanism. Due to gravitational effects, steam tends to move towards the upper portion of the reservoir causing the lower section to be poorly drained. In order to overcome this eff...

In order to reduce the oil saturations in the oil and steam saturated zones of the reservoir to the lowest possible value during steam injection, an understanding of the interfacial tension (IFT) between the displacing fluid “steam” and non-displacing “oil” is indispensable. However, the interactions with different asphaltene content between crude...

Crude oil makes a major contribution to the world economy today. To meet the rising energy consumption in the world, there is a dire need to produce more crude oil. Hence, attention is being paid to Secondary Recovery for recovering more oil from the existing oil fields. Secondary Recovery refers to techniques, such as gas or water injection. This...

Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) refers to any reservoir process used to change the existing rock/oil/brine interactions in the reservoir in order to increase the oil recovery (Sheng, 2011). The two most common EOR methods that have been widely applied in the petroleum industry are perhaps chemical and thermal floods. However, the economic production of...
