Project Title

Improved Characterisation of Three-Phase Flow in Porous Media and WAG Injection


In this project the potential of a number of EOR techniques will be investigated, first, by performing experiments under reservoir conditions and then by performing numerical simulation and mathematical modelling.

The main objectives of the project are as follows:

  1. Identify the performance of different EOR techniques by quantifying the amount of additional oil recovery;
  2. Evaluate the validity of the existing formulation in commercial reservoir simulators; and
  3. Develop improved models and methodologies for modelling the tested EOR techniques.
