A streamline type mathematical model has been developed which may be used to study oil recovery by viscous waterfloods for any desired well spacing. The model was used to study the combined effects of permeability stratification, polymer concentration and viscous water slug size for a five spot injection pattern.
Five different permeability profiles ranging from a homogeneous to a highly stratified reservoir were studied. It was found that viscous…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
