Changing the Mix: A New Approach to Polymers for Offshore EOR
Researchers from Chevron are looking into a new approach to understand the drivers of polymer hydration. How might this affect the design of mixing systems in the field, and could it affect offshore EOR applications?
Caltech Spin-Out Develops Molecules To Improve Pipeline Flow
Fluid Efficiency and Rhapsody Venture will partner to refine and launch a new molecular technology to improve the flow in pipelines.
Water Management for Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Resources—Part 2 Properties and Characteristics of Flowback Fluids
In this second article of a series covering water management in hydraulic fracturing (HF) in unconventional resources, the properties and characteristics of the flowback fluids are discussed, together with the general categories of technologies that are best suited to treat them.
Water Management for Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Resources—Part 1
This is the first of several articles on the subject of water management for unconventional hydraulic fracturing. This article outlines the critical issues and outlines development of a strategy for treatment of flowback fluids.
Challenges of Water Treating for Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery
Higher oil prices has created increased interest in chemical enhanced oil recovery (CEOR) using polymers, surfactants, and alkalis. This technology poses some special challenges, especially around water treatment.
First Polymer Injection in Deep Offshore Field Angola: Recent Advances in the Dalia/Camelia Field Case
The Polymer injection project on the Dalia field, a high permeability sandstone reservoir deep offshore Angola, is a world first in both surface and subsurface aspects. A phased approach was used to manage risks, along with development of new monitoring approaches.
