Description

Miscible Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) mechanisms in unconventional, tight reservoirs are substantially different than those associated with miscible gas flooding in conventional reservoirs. Due to potentially low cross-well throughput in ultra-low permeability rock, the single-well Huff-n-Puff process is being considered within the industry for application in unconventional reservoirs. The talk summarizes an integrated methodology followed for Huff-n-Puff process assessment. This approach helps explain key EOR mechanisms and demonstrates how to design an optimal scheme for field trials. Initial results indicate that carbon dioxide (CO2) Huff-and-Puff may be a technically feasible EOR method for the assessed unconventional reservoirs.
