Geophysical properties of carbon monoxide when used as an enhanced oil recovery agent
ABSTRACT Many reservoirs witness decreased production related to the mobility of hydrocarbons given the composition of the fluids and rocks, and the reservoir environment (ie: temperature and pressure). Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) efforts attempt to manipulate these conditions to reach profitable production and prolong the economic viability of these known resources. Different approaches have been established for EOR, including steam and CO2 injection. While these methods have had widespread success in many reservoirs, there are various downfalls associated with each type of fluid injected into ...
