... of produced gas and water into a reservoir in order to re-energize it and to resaturate the oil. Injection is done through existing vertical wells; however, it appears necessary to drill infill horizontal production wells to attain good rates of production, particularly in quite thin reservoirs (5 m or less...

... Abstract Miscible flooding is considered unsuitable for some reservoirs in southeast Saskatchewan because of high CO, minimum miscibility pressure or operating pressure constraints. Therefore, the effectiveness of near-miscible CO 2 injection was assessedfor Steelmnn reservoir in a laboratory...

... Abstract Reservoir engineering (and simulation) have historically paid little attention to the geomechanical behaviour of porous media. However, a number of important (primarily unconventional) recovery processes can be properly engineered only by including this effect (e.g., thermal recovery...

... Introduction The Weybum Unit is one of the largest medium-sour crude oil reservoirs in Canada, containing approximately 207 E6 m3 of original oil in place. The field was discovered in 1955 and has been on water flood since 1964. The Weyburn Unit includes 530 production wells and 170 water...

A great deal of strain energy is input to the reservoir by the aggressive stroking, and this unblocks the near-wellbore, loosens and liquefies the unconsolidated formation, and even affects the interwell region...
