    An experimental and modeling study of asphaltene deposition due to CO 2 miscible injection

    , Article Petroleum Science and Technology ; Volume 31, Issue 2 , 2013 , Pages 129-141 ; 10916466 (ISSN) Bolouri, H ; Schaffie, M ; Kharrat, R ; Ghazanfari, M. H ; Ghoodjani, E ; Sharif University of Technology
    The authors studied deposition and entrainment of asphaltene particles as major mechanisms that occur in porous media. Deposition mechanisms that contribute to permeability reduction and entrainment of deposited particle improve the damaged permeability value. While in most previous works the effects of entrainment mechanism are considered negligible, in this study miscible CO2 injection tests were conducted by core flood apparatus to investigate the effect of asphaltene deposition on permeability and porosity alterations. Results indicated that proposed model for entrainment mechanism is affected by deposition mechanism. The asphaltene deposition core's characteristics have undeniable roles... 

    Numerical Modeling of Diagnostic Fracture Injection Test

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hasanpour Kelishomi, Milad (Author) ; Shad, Saeed (Supervisor) ; Zivar, Davood (Co-Supervisor)
    Diagnostic Fracture Injection Test (DFIT) uses to identify the characteristics of the reservoir, including minimum horizontal stress, permeability, initial reservoir pressure, etc. The general steps of this process include fluid injection, fracture initiation in the matrix, fracture propagation and its closure due to fluid leak-off. The results of DFIT are analyzed in two stages based on the fracture closure event. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of leak-off mechanisms on pressure-dependent leak-off (PDL), tip extension and fracture storage. To do so, different methods are used for identifying the cooperating parameters at each step. In order to analyze DFIT, a... 

    Permeability impairment study due to asphaltene deposition: experimental and modeling approach

    , Article Transport in Porous Media ; Volume 91, Issue 3 , February , 2012 , Pages 999-1012 ; 01693913 (ISSN) Bolouri, S. H ; Ghoodjani, E ; Sharif University of Technology
    This fact is well known that during any scenario of production, asphaltene deposition in porous media has a substantial effect on oil flow. But a clear understanding of asphaltene deposition mechanisms can help to minimize asphaltenic problem in oil-bearing formations. In this study, the experimental results of three dynamic CO 2 miscible injection tests were investigated. Regarding the effects of adsorption, mechanical entrapment, and sweeping mechanisms on permeability behavior, a mathematical mass and permeability variation model were developed. According to the experimental results asphaltene deposition causes a 70% loss of sand stone initial permeability while the loss is significantly...
