Integrated reservoir characterization and modeling in support of enhanced oil recovery for Bakken
This research presents an integrated reservoir characterization study of the Bakken fields in North Dakota. First, the Bakken petroleum geology is studied to evaluate the flow-related properties of the hydrocarbon-bearing formations from core scale to field scale. This part of the research focuses on the Middle Bakken formation which has been the target for horizontal drilling in Williston Basin. Second, the fluid flow hierarchy in the Middle Bakken formation is determined by comparing the differences between permeability measured from laboratory core experiments and field tests. Effective ...
