Coreflooding and Steady-State Principles Determine Reaction Kinetics
The paper describes a method to match reaction kinetics from coreflooding experiments.
A methodology is presented for determining reaction kinetics from coreflooding. A core is flooded with reactive brine at different compositions with injection rates varied systematically. Each combination is performed until steady state, when effluent concentrations no longer change significantly with time. The authors also propose shut-in tests where brine reacts statically with the core for a defined period and then is flushed out.
