Modeling of asphaltene precipitation and arterial deposition
The potential problem produced by asphaltene deposition during oil production has motivated the development of several experimental techniques and theoretical models, trying to understand and predict the asphaltene behavior. ...
Study of Foam Mobility Control in Surfactant Enhanced Oil Recovery Processes in One-Dimensional, Heterogeneous Two-Dimensional, and Micro Model Systems
The focus of this thesis was conducting experiments which would help in understanding mechanisms and in design of surfactant enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes in various scenarios close to reservoir conditions such as ...
Modeling vapor-liquid-solid phase behavior in natural gas systems
This thesis proposes modeling phase behavior, including the solid phase, during gas processing. Failure to accurately predict solid phase formation or freezing of CO2, hydrates, and water ice causes plugging and equipment ...
Viscosity Evaluation of Heavy Oils from NMR Well Logging
Heavy oil is characterized by its high viscosity, which is a major obstacle to both logging and recovery. Due to the loss of T 2 information shorter than the echo spacing ( TE ), estimation of heavy oil properties from NMR ...
