Increased Oil Recovery from Mature Oil Fields Using Gelled Polymer Treatments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report describes the progress of the first year of a three-year research program. This program is aimed at reducing barriers to the widespread use of gelled polymer treatments by (1) developing methods to predict gel behavior during placement in matrix rock and fractures, (2) determining the persistence of permeability reduction after gel placement, and (3) developing methods to design production well treatments to control water production.
