The fluid related topics for CO2 injection process will be discussed for both EOR and sequestration objectives.
Chairs: Rob Sutton, Marathon; Curtis Whitson, Pera Norway; Ed Bickam, FESCO; and Jefferson Creek, Chevron
Like shale, tight or low permeability reservoirs are the new unconventional resources attracting widespread industry attention. Initially targeted for gas, these reservoirs are now being developed for oil, gas-condensates, and natural gas liquids (NGLs). There are many unknown fluid aspects to be discussed.
Chairs: John Ratulowski, Schlumberger; Russ Bone, ConocoPhillips; and Tao Yang, Statoil USA
Bitumen (oil sand) represents another major unconventional resource. Understanding reactive systems is very critical when dealing with steam-related recovery methods under high temperatures.
Chairs: Kristian Krejbjerg, Calsep USA; Jefferson Creek, Chevron; and Francois Montel, Total
Reservoir fluid distribution in reservoir remains one of the most challenging task for reservoir engineers. Different fluid gradient theories and practices will be discussed in this session. To make the challenges even more difficult, we plan to touch on asphaltene issues in the reservoir.
Chairs: Yun Wang, BP; John Lawrence, ExxonMobil; and Fredrik Saaf, Shell Canada
There are fluid challenges cross the whole value chain. They occur from the geo-operation process to geochemistry, and from reservoir pressure, volume, and temperature (PVT), production, and flow assurance down to surface processing. We will emphasize the importance of fluid integration of reservoir PVT with flow assurance and surface processing.
