Bodcau In Situ Combustion Project combustion tube tests. Topical report of January 1979

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A series of combustion tube tests were performed at the Cities Service Research Laboratory using Bellevue core samples and produced oil. The objectives of the study were to obtain information concerning the basic in-situ combustion process that would aid in understanding the performance of the Bellevue fireflood. Also investigated was the interaction of water with the burning process in order to determine the water/air injection ratio that should be used in field operations. Finally, the formation ignition temperature of the rock-oil system was approximated by means of laboratory oxidation tests. The following conclusions were determined from the laboratory combustion tests: ... continued below

Description

A series of combustion tube tests were performed at the Cities Service Research Laboratory using Bellevue core samples and produced oil. The objectives of the study were to obtain information concerning the basic in-situ combustion process that would aid in understanding the performance of the Bellevue fireflood. Also investigated was the interaction of water with the burning process in order to determine the water/air injection ratio that should be used in field operations. Finally, the formation ignition temperature of the rock-oil system was approximated by means of laboratory oxidation tests. The following conclusions were determined from the laboratory combustion tests: (1) Fuel deposit and air requirement of dry combustion were calculated by means of combustion tube tests to be 2 number/f/sup 3/ and 17 MMSCF/A-f. (2) Injecting water increases the efficiency of the burning process by decreasing fuel deposit and air requirement. (3) Water rates as high as 500 B/MMSCF do not extinguish the combustion reaction in the laboratory system. (4) The ignition temperature of the Nacatoch formation is approximately 500/sup 0/F.
