Enhanced Oil Recovery Field Case Studies

Enhanced oil recovery field case studies bridge the gap between theory and practice in a range of real-world EOR settings. Areas covered include steam and polymer flooding, use of foam, in situ combustion, microorganisms, "smart water"-based EOR in carbonates and sandstones, and many more. Oil industry professionals know that the key to a successful enhanced oil recovery project lies in anticipating the differences between plans and the realities found in the field. This book aids that effort, providing valuable case studies from more than 250 EOR pilot and field applications in a variety of oil fields. The case studies cover practical problems, underlying theoretical and modeling methods, operational parameters, solutions and sensitivity studies, and performance optimization strategies, benefitting academicians and oil company practitioners alike. Strikes an ideal balance between theory and practice.

Developments in microbial-enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) have made huge advancements over the last few years. A new programmatic approach to MEOR is organic oil recovery (OOR), the management of the microbial ecology to facilitate the release of oil from the reservoir. Using this breakthrough process, which does not require microbes to be injected, over 180 applications have been conducted between 2007 and 2011 in producing oil and water-injection wells in the United States and Canada. This chapter reviews the OOR process, a summary

The fundamentals of individual chemical process (alkaline, surfactant, and polymer) and their two-component combinations have been discussed in preceding chapters. This chapter only briefly discusses the synergy and practical issues in the three-component combination—Alkaline-surfactant-polymer process. The practical issues discussed are produced emulsion, scaling, and chromatographic separation. Overall performance and amount of chemicals used in field projects are summarized. Most of the Chinese field cases were presented in Sheng (2011). In this chapter, we only present a few field cases outside

Water flooding of oil reservoirs has been performed for a century in order to improve oil recovery for two reasons: (1) give pressure support to the reservoir to prevent gas production and (2) displace the oil by viscous forces. During the last 30 years, it was discovered that the wetting properties of the reservoir played a very important role for the efficiency of the water flood. Even though much work have been published on crude oil–brine–rock (CBR) interaction related to wetting

Based on the enhanced oil recovery (EOR) survey in Oil and Gas Journal (2010), approximately 280,000bbl of oil per day or 6% of US crude oil production was produced by carbon dioxide (CO2) EOR. Just like any other gas injection processes, field CO2 flooding projects suffer from poor sweep efficiency due to early gas breakthrough, unfavorable mobility ratio, reservoir heterogeneity, viscous fingering and channeling, and gravity segregation. Many of these problems are believed to be alleviated or overcome by foaming the injected

Microbial-enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) is the use of microorganisms to increase the recovery of oil from existing oil reservoirs. There are nearly 400 US patents dealing with MEOR, some of which add microorganisms to nearly depleted oil reservoirs while others rely on the indigenous microorganisms. The patent literature is reviewed and two successful field trials by the author are described. A completed field trial using microbial permeability profile modification (MPPM) in a field using waterflooding as the secondary method of oil

Steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD), since its inception over 30 years ago, has been developed into one of the primary thermal recovery processes for bitumen in Canadian oil sands deposits. This chapter is aimed to provide a high-level description of process principle, features, and challenges. The focuses will be on the evaluation of resource quality suited for SAGD development, the process of start-up to initiate and establish the gravity drainage, the well design, and operational aspects to achieve stable operation and

Cold production is a solution-gas drive process in which a reservoir saturated with live heavy oil reservoir is depleted as quickly as possible to generate relatively stable gas bubbles leading to higher oil recoveries (5–10% original oil in place (OOIP)) than for light oils (2–5% OOIP). More specifically, these bubbles increase the oil/gas mixture compressibility, which maintains the reservoir pressures for longer times than for light oils.

This chapter describes polymer flooding applications as a mobility control and profile modification process to enhance oil recovery from mature fields. Successful experience from the Daqing Oilfield, the largest oil field application of polymer flooding, is summarized. The experience will be of considerable value to future polymer flood applications elsewhere in oil fields with appropriate reservoir conditions. Based on laboratory research and field applications at Daqing, technologies were developed that expand conventional ideas concerning favorable conditions for mobility improvement by

One of the most accepted and widely used technologies for enhanced oil recovery is injection of gas or solvent that is miscible or near miscible with reservoir oil. Understanding gas flooding requires a good understanding of the interaction of phase behavior and flow in the reservoir, and how oil and gas develop miscibility.

This chapter presents models of wettability alteration using surfactants and upscaling models related to oil recovery in fractured carbonate reservoirs. Chemicals used in carbonate reservoirs are reviewed. The presented field cases where surfactants were used to stimulate oil recovery are the Mauddud carbonate in Bahrain, the Yates field and the Cretaceous Upper Edwards reservoir in Texas, the Cottonwood Creek field in Wyoming, and the Baturaja formation in the Semoga field in Indonesia.
