Secondary Recovery: Waterflooding & Gas Injection
Introduces the fundamental principles governing the displacement of oil by water in reservoir rocks, as well as techniques for predicting oil recovery by water and gas injection. Describes the important factors to consider in planning secondary recovery projects.
Enhanced Recovery: Miscible Flooding
Introduces the physical and chemical processes governing the recovery of oil by miscible displacing agents. Contains extensive discussion of methods for estimating oil recovery. Describes the considerations involved in designing a miscible flood, and illustrates these considerations by reviewing a number of pilot tests and commercial projects.
