Karakterisering av silika nanopartikler for økt oljeutvinning
(The University of Bergen, 2014-09-01)
Anvendelsen av silika nanopartikler for EOR-formål krever stabile dispersjoner ved typiske reservoarforhold. Optimale silikadispersjoner vil være stabile over lengre tid ved nøytrale pH- verdier og høye elektrolyttko ...
Diffusion as an Oil Recovery Mechanism During CO2 Injection in Fractured Reservoirs
(The University of Bergen, 2013-11-19)
This thesis is part of an ongoing study of enhanced oil recovery by CO2 injection in the Reservoir Physics research group at the Department of Physics and Technology (IFT) at the University of Bergen. This work investigates ...
Simulation of Enhanced Heavy Oil Recovery: History Match of Waterflooding and Polymer injection at Adverse Mobility Ratio
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Waterflooding and polymer flooding total recovery in the unstable immiscible displacement is very attractive and its applications are interesting in recent years. However, the simulation models of unstable immiscible ...
Study of Gas Mobility Control during CO2 Injection for Enhanced Oil Recovery
(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) has been used as a commercial source for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) for over 40 years. In recent years, the utilization of anthropogenic CO2 has become more attractive, because of its proven EOR ...
Rheological properties of hydrophobically modified anionic polymers: The effect of varying salinity in polymer solution
(The University of Bergen, 2017-06-16)
A new class of polymers, named ‘hydrophobically modified water-soluble polymers’, has been developed as an alternative to the more commonly used polyelectrolytes in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) applications. These polymers ...
Foam Generation and Flow in Fractures with Different Aperture
(The University of Bergen, 2017-06-20)
This experimental thesis investigate foam generation and flow properties in real, rough-walled fractures, through impermeable marble core plugs. A range of fracture apertures was investigated, denoted open, partially open ...
