Zobeidi explained that these studies entailed detailed studies and focus on reservoir details such as fluid properties, reservoir rock properties, and other reservoir specifications, while in MDP studies, not much focus was given to such details.
During the drilling and development process, the formation pressure changes and the seepage characteristics of the reservoir rock also change correspondingly.
The reservoir rock fuid saturation is referred to as the percentage of the pore space filled with a particular fuid and the sum of all the fuids in the pore spaces equals one hundred percent.
The coinjection of S[O.sub.2] thus has the potential to significantly change the porosity and permeability of a reservoir rock which in turn affects the injectivity of fluid transport [6,9-11].
K-4, a water-bearing reservoir, has high gas saturations in poor reservoir rock and low gas saturations in the better reservoir rock.
The reservoir rock must be hydraulically fracked to enhance the productivity of the wells
TAGOGD is ideal for highly fractured reservoir rock like that found in Qarn Alam, because the steam can be injected directly into the fractures, where it heats the surrounding rock and lowers the viscosity of the oil by a factor of up to 100 times.
The principle of the "cycling" is that the injected gas, which is put underground through special injection wells, moves through the reservoir rock toward the producing wells and is produced again along with more liquids.
Oxford Instruments and partner Green Imaging Technologies have produced the P5 Cell for high pressure and temperature studies of petroleum reservoir rock core plugs.
Fracking of reservoir rock has been done for 40 years; fracking of source rocks is quite new, and it is this which has attracted the Greens' ire.
Note: If a seismic amplitude anomaly caused by the interface of a cap rock and a reservoir rock is further supported by a so called AVO effect the chances for the presence of hydrocarbons in the reservoir rock is often greatly increased.
