Characterization of Naturally Fractured Reservoirs.
• Geological and petrophysical analysis of reservoir cores.
Screening reservoir data for waterflood and gas injection candidates.
• Core-log integration, reservoir characterization.
• Development of specific algorithms for log evaluation (identification of pay zones and water saturation in the pay)
• Fracture identification (natural or coring induced) and characterization.
Well test analysis and analysis of inflow performance of horizontal wells.
• Imbibition, capillary pressure, interfacial tension and wettability determination.
• Scaling laboratory results to predict waterflood response.
Numerical simulation of waterflooding Naturally Fractured Reservoirs.
• Phase behavior and Minimum Miscibility Pressure (MMP) determination.
• Gas injection experiments in fractured systems (whole core at reservoir conditions).
Evaluation, scaling and design of gas injection results for implementation of projects in naturally fractured systems.
• Case history review of Midale CO2 Pilot and Wellman Unit CO2 Flood
