Oil Bank Build up: An experimental approach

Time: 12:45 – 13:30, Februari 7
Room: 02.110


We experimentally demonstrated the process of oil bank build up by means of chemical injection at two different pore framework scales. These experimental results provided a high degree of data integrity. In addition, results give direct evidence for the mechanism of oil bank build up and upscaling procedure. We ensured the repeatability, reproducibility and integrity of the experimental data. We visualized and explored semi-quantitatively the entire process from mobilizing residual oil to dispersed flow to oil bank formation using core flow tests using cores of different lengths (7 – 100 cm).
