Paper Number: SPE-193643-MS
..., given the evident complexity of the dynamics expected in the steam injection problem. However, from an electrical stand point a cylindrical shape of a uniform resistivity contrast should provide enough information to determine the resolving capability of the CSEM method. The resistivity of the plume was...

Paper Number: SPE-193681-MS
... Summary In thermal heavy-oil production, steam is injected to reduce oil viscosity and promote the less viscous oil flowing to the production wells. Steam injectivity and its conformance in the reservoir greatly impacts oil production and project economics. It is found that hydraulic dilation...

... cost solution is to use direct solar steam and allow the steam injection at a variable rate - this may require some upgrades to allow fully- automatic flow control throughout the steam distribution system. With this method (and a typical weather year) solar fractions of approximately up to 40% may be...

Paper Number: SPE-193723-MS
... Abstract Heavy and extra-heavy crude oil reservoirs hold physicochemical characteristics that can frequently turn their operation into a technical and economic challenge. Typically, heating techniques are used to decrease oil viscosity. Areas with steam injection are susceptible to developing...

... As such, there had been a strategic clamor for the most optimal production technology to develop this asset since its discovery and this led to two pilot Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS) projects to be conducted in the Lower Fars field [ 2 ]. At that time, thermal recovery through steam injection...

... Normal Irradiance (DNI) of Kuwait. Given that the heating and pressurization of the subterranean reservoir typically transpires over a period of many months, EOR process is not sensitive to the timing of steam injection, and thus we can assume no steam injection during the periods with no sun.
