Session 13: Prospective Enhanced Oil Recovery Techniques

As economic and environmental concerns associated with oil and gas production are increasing, efficient extraction of natural resources has become progressively more important. This session covers topics including the use of both modeling and bench tests to investigate the effects of varying salinity, temperature and additives like nanoparticles in injection water on oil recovery and CO2 retention. These techniques are presented to show the response of injection water variability on different reservoir conditions.

Session 15: Unconventional Reservoirs: Characterization and Modeling

The characterization and modeling of unconventional reservoirs is challenging. The session presents some advances in the numerical modeling of hydraulic fracture networks, scale deposition, complex phase behavior and transport mechanisms. Experimental work on the impact of fracture surface roughness on proppant transport and the role of chemical additives in steam injection is also presented. The session ends with approaches to deal with pressure-dependent permeability and uncertainty quantification, as well as a case study about the opportunities and challenges of an asset under a low price environment.
