An experimental investigation of sequential CO2 and N 2 gas injection as a new EOR Method, Article Energy Sources, Part A: Recovery, Utilization and Environmental Effects ; Vol. 36, Issue. 17 , 2014 , pp. 1938-1948 ; ISSN: 15567230 ; Shadizadeh, S.

Typical non-hydrocarbon gases, which have been utilized in miscible and immiscible processes, are carbon dioxide and nitrogen. These gases are usually injected separately and have been rarely utilized together as a tertiary recovery process. In this article, the authors have experimentally focused on sequential carbon dioxide and nitrogen gas injection as a new enhanced oil recovery method. The periodic injections of carbon dioxide and nitrogen have been repeated for six injection pore volumes. Sensitivity analysis of injection pressure, injection volume, and injection rate has also been investigated in core flood experiments. The experimental results have revealed that a sequential miscible...
Optimal conditions for immiscible recycle gas injection process: A simulation study for one of the Iranian oil reservoirs, Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 18, Issue 6 , 2011 , Pages 1407-1414 ; 10263098 (ISSN) ; Kharrat, R ; Khalili, M ; Mehranfar, M ; Sharif University of Technology
Immiscible gas injection is one of the most common enhanced oil recovery methods used under various reservoir conditions. In this work, the immiscible recycle gas injection, as an EOR scenario for improving recovery efficiency in one of the south-west Iranian oil reservoirs, is simulated by a commercial simulator, ECLIPSE. The reservoir fluid is light oil, with an API of 43. The oil bearing formations are carbonate, and so a dual porosity/dual permeability behavior was chosen for better representation of the fracture system. Different sensitivity analyses with respect to several parameters like the number and location of injection/production wells, production/injection rate, completion...
