Enhanced recovery

Oil production from thin-oil-rim fields can be a challenge considering early gas breakthrough and high gas/oil ratio. This study evaluates the performance of autonomous inflow control valves (in comparison with inflow control devices and sand screens) and their effectiveness in improved oil recovery in such fields.
This paper describes the potential, challenges, and opportunities of using a modified steam-assisted gravity drainage configuration in the Mukhaizna heavy oil field in suboptimal operating conditions.
This study aims at understanding the effect of a surfactant known as a high-temperature emulsifying agent as an additive to the steam-assisted gravity drainage process and the possibility of forming oil-in-water emulsions.
