Coupled transport and chemical interactions in petroleum reservoirs: Multicomponent tracer demonstration large scale application

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This is the final report for a two-year, Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Enhanced tracer approaches for characterization of oil reservoirs were demonstrated and evaluated for both transport and chemical interactions. Existing tracer technology is limited in numbers of tracers and relies heavily on radioactive species. Using expertise developed at Los Alamos through applications of chemical, analytical, and geologic techniques to testing, alternative energy and environmental programs, we have defined new classes of conservative and reactive non-radioactive tracers for both laboratory and field experiments. Reservoir experiments are critical to improved reservoir management, ... continued below

Description

This is the final report for a two-year, Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Enhanced tracer approaches for characterization of oil reservoirs were demonstrated and evaluated for both transport and chemical interactions. Existing tracer technology is limited in numbers of tracers and relies heavily on radioactive species. Using expertise developed at Los Alamos through applications of chemical, analytical, and geologic techniques to testing, alternative energy and environmental programs, we have defined new classes of conservative and reactive non-radioactive tracers for both laboratory and field experiments. Reservoir experiments are critical to improved reservoir management, characterization of CO{sub 2} flooding, and validation/development of significantly enhanced simulators utilizing advanced computational technology. A demonstration field tracer experiment has been performed in the Salt Creek Field Unit in West Texas to characterize a section of the reservoir under water-flood. An initial robust set of tracers, field experience in their application, and interpretation methodology was demonstrated for large scale multi-well, multi-tracer flow and connectivity tests.
