  • Publication number: 20170234126
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for determining properties of subsurface formations, such as for oilfield applications. The methods can comprise calculating a Gibbs free energy of the subsurface formation using a parameter of the subsurface formation. The methods can further comprise determining the property of the subsurface formation using the Gibbs free energy of the subsurface formation. The methods can, in some examples, further comprise selecting an enhanced oil recovery technique for the subsurface formation based on the calculated property of the subsurface formation. In some examples, the enhanced oil recovery technique can comprise low salinity water injection.

  • Publication number: 20120330553
    Abstract: In accordance with one or more embodiments of the present disclosure a method for forecasting an advanced recovery process for a reservoir comprises determining a displacement Koval factor associated with a displacement agent associated with an advanced recovery process. The displacement Koval factor is based on heterogeneity of porosity of the reservoir and mobility of the displacement agent. The method further comprises determining a final average oil saturation of the reservoir associated with the advanced recovery process being finished. The method additionally comprises determining an average oil saturation of the reservoir as a function of time for the advanced recovery process based on the displacement Koval factor and the final average oil saturation.
