Aspects of time-lapse electrical resistivity monitoring in geotechnical and reservoir problems
Internal erosion can be present in almost any environment in which fluid flows through a rock matrix. In almost all cases this phenomenon is a problem to be avoided. Internal erosion weakens the rock structure, which can cause collapse of the surrounding matrix. In the geotechnical field, this is most common with earthen dams and levees. The consequence of internal erosion in an oil and gas reservoir setting is to create a high-permeability link between injection and production wells, by-passing resource containing volumes of the reservoir. In this thesis, I present feasibility studies to ...
