Gas EOR Project 7: Measurements and Predictions of Dimensionless Groups under Gas Injection

Primary Investiagor: David DiCarlo

Injected gas is not at chemical equilibrium with the in place oil, which can create large gradients in interfacial tension (IFT) at the displacement fronts. We will perform experiments that measure the sizes of the gradients, and determine the relevant dimensionless numbers (e.g. capillary, Bond) for floods with changing IFTs.
