A potential solution to mitigate the adverse effects of viscous fingering, gravity override, and reservoir heterogeneity on the efficiency of gas injection in porous media is to inject the gas with a solution containing surface-active agents such as surfactants or nanoparticles. The efficiency of these processes largely depends on the generation...

Alternating injection of water and gas (WAG) has been widely applied as an oil recovery strategy since the late 1950s. The expected benefits are improved macroscopic sweep, with the water and gas sweeping lower and upper zones of the reservoir respectively, and improved microscopic sweep due to various effects leading to lowering of the residual...

A distance parameterization of flood fronts derived from time-lapse seismic anomalies was recently developed to facilitate incorporation of time-lapse seismic data into history matching workflows based on ensemble methods such as the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) and the ensemble smoother (ES). A number of advantages were demonstrated on...

Recent progress in 4D seismic history matching benefits greatly from the use of 4D seismic timelapse data. Several methods for inversion of 4D seismic timelapse data for reservoir pressure and saturation have been developed with mixed success. Most of these methods work well on synthetic data or real data with low noise levels, but degrade in...

Recently, a distance parameterization of flood fronts derived from seismic anomalies was proposed as a solution in combination with the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF), which is known as an efficient method for conditioning of multiple reservoir models to observed data. Even though the distance parameterization in terms of front positions is...

One of the main activities in the (re-)development of large hydrocarbon fields is the drilling of new wells. The drilling process may involve a large number of wells and take several years to complete. Challenges include the selection of a limited set of wells from many possible well paths, and the scheduling of the drilling itself....

Each oil reservoir could be characterized by a set of parameters such as temperature, pressure, oil composition, and brine salinity, etc. In the context of the chemical enhanced oil recovery (EOR), the selection of high performance surfactants is a challenging and time-consuming task since this strongly depends on the reservoir's conditions. The...

In the production well of a low-enthalpy geothermal doublet hot water is pumped from reservoirs at about 50-1007deg;C. After passing through a heat exchanger, the cold water is re-injected at about 20-357deg;C in the injection well into the reservoir, which initially has the same temperature as the produced water. Under some circumstances, this...

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) should be a key technology in order to achieve a decline in the CO2 emissions intensity of the power sector and other intensive industry, but this potential deployment could be restricted by cost issues as the International Energy Agency (IEA) in their last projections (World Energy Outlook 2013) has considered...

The Decision Support System (DSS) Emergency Planning is designed for use in the event of sea or river flooding. It makes accessible all the information related to the decision whether to evacuate an area. An important factor in this decision is the time required for the evacuation. The model used by the DSS Emergency Planning system to estimate...
