  • Analysis on sway of spilled oil recovery apparatus lifted up from unmanned surface vehicle

    This paper discusses the sway of a spilled oil recovery apparatus mounted on the unmanned surface vehicle (USV) when it is lifted up off water surface. The dynamic model is established considering the pitch of the USV, and simulation experiment is conducted under the condition of no wind disturbance. The results show that the amplitude and frequency of the pitch are main factors influencing the sway of the oil recovery apparatus, and the effect of rope length on the sway is much smaller than amplitude and frequency of the pitch.

  • Role of oil-water emulsion in enhanced oil recovery

    Oil-in-water emulsions are important in the petroleum industry as a displacing fluid for enhanced oil recovery. In the present study commercially available gear oil was used to prepare oil-in-water emulsions. Characterizations of the emulsions were performed with respect to their physicochemical properties and size distribution of the dispersed oil droplet in water phase. Experiments were also carried out to observe the efficiency of the emulsion as displacing fluid for enhanced oil recovery. Substantial additional recoveries (more than 20% of original oil in place) over conventional water flooding were obtained in the present study.

  • Method of a Fuzzy Cluster Analysis to Evaluate Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery

    Fuzzy clustering analysis is a widely used fuzzy mathematics method ,which could be applied in various fields. Based on the fuzzy set theory, application of fuzzy clustering analysis in microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) was studied. At first, strains which had ability to produce biosurfactant were selected as part of the statistical indicators. Then data were corrected and standardized by empirical formula. Similarity matrix was established with angle cosine. After that, clustering analysis was made and evaluated by Transitive Closure. Finally, the strain which had the best adaptability to the oilfield conditions was chosen by fuzzy cluster analysis. And so the optimal choice mechanism was established.

  • Technology of Enhanced Oil Recovery by Means of Electromagnetic Exposure on the Difficult Oil Reservoir

    Enhancement of oil fields recovery is a top priority goal for fuel and energy companies especially when hydrocarbon fields are depleted to a considerable degree. Residual reserves or reserves unrecoverable by means of conventional techniques account for in average 55-75% of the original in-place reserves. In this regard the implementation of advanced methods aimed at oil production increase will provide for both the enhancement of significant residual reserves and the decrease of oil production costs, which becomes comparable to conventional oil production. The article deals with the theoretical aspects of interaction of the oil fluid and subsurface rock in the electric field. To simulate the liquid flow in the porous medium a laboratory bench capable of electric exposure on the rock sample under close-to reservoir conditions most close was invented.

  • Nature's little helpers - [power oil recovery]

    An extra 600 billion barrels of oil could be extracted from existing oilfields by using microbes according to oil giant BP. The paper investigeates this statement. Proposed since the 1920s, the use of microbes to enhance oil recovery has remained practically unseen. However, the advances of modern biotechnology and the recent discovery and characterisation of indigenous microbes living in the oil reservoirs has now brought this technology to the attention of oil companies. The process is called microbially enhanced hydrocarbon recovery (MEHR), and it is being studied in a BP-funded programme at the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI) at the University of California at Berkeley. The most basic method of oil recovery, called primary oil recovery, uses the natural pressure in the well to capture the oil. To increase the recovery rate, secondary recovery methods are used in which the oil wells are flooded with a medium water, gas or vapour allowing the modification of the physicochemical properties of the reservoirs. But the average recovery rate obtained by using both these classical methods is only around 20%.

  • The effect of vugy fractions on oil recovery factor and breakthrough time for two phase radial flow by mean of reservoir simulater

    Statistical studies observed that most of the world's hydrocarbon reserves are in carbonate formation. However, carbonate reservoirs are mostly heterogeneous and have primary and secondary porosity (Vug or Fracture). The primary (matrix) represents the major storage capacity while secondary system (Vug or Fracture) provides the main paths of the flowing fluids. In addition, The new studies show that Vuggy porous media are common in carbonate rocks. Because it is difficult to collect production data for one well with different vugs distribution, one of the most popular reservoir simulators in the oil and gas industry was used, which is the EclipseTM for Schlumberger Company. The objectives of this study is to simulate of vuggy reservoir for two phase radial flow with different vug fractions and distribution because most of the previous studies were for linear flow. Also, this paper presents the effect of vug fractions on oil recovery factor, oil in place, total water production, and breakthrough time.

  • An onboard vacuum suction spilled oil recovery system

    A vacuum suction oil skimming system has been studied. The system employs a high power vacuum blower for sucking high viscosity oil. Its applicability to an onboard oil recovery system has been experimentally investigated using small-size models as well as a large-size model. The suction performance has been measured and is given in terms of liquid suction rates, oil and water fraction, friction loss and liquid holdup in the riser pipe in various simulated conditions including wave and current. An emulsified heavy oil whose viscosity is as high as 300,000 mPa.s was used. The results shows that the vacuum suction is a suitable method for recovering the spilled oil on the sea surface since the system has better performance on a wavy surface than a calm water. This work also includes the system overview and a basic design strategy for a real-size onboard oil recovery system which will be installed on a new oil recovery vessel.

  • Feasibility Study of CO2 Injection Development to Enhance Oil Recovery

    Because the casing damage was very serious and water injection became difficult in Sa I group of Lamadian oil field, it was required to adopt new oil recovery technology for further development. The petroleum industry uses CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) for many years now, It can mitigate climate change and reduce atmospheric CO2 levels. Combined with numerical simulation results and the oilfield development experience at home and abroad, it was proposed to inject CO2 in Sa I group. Based on the establishment of the fine geological model of Lamadian oilfield Beibei block, using eclipse software to do history matching of water flooding process in the entire block, the remaining oil saturation distribution was predicted after water flooding, and five development plans are compared. The results showed that 5-spot pattern with 212m well space and water alternating CO2 injection to the well can achieve the best economic benefits, and the highest recovery. 5-spot pattern with 212m well space and continuous CO2 injection to well have the close enhanced oil recovery rate with the water alternating CO2 injection, and it doesn't need to inject water. It will not have a big impact on further application of new technologies. It causes relatively small formation damage. Therefore, it is more suitable for oilfield development.

  • Experimental study of electromagnetic waves affects on enhanced oil recovery

    The heating of crude oil by using electromagnetic waves can enhanced the recovery of crude oil due to reduction in its viscosity and assisting in its movement. This paper describes effect of electromagnetic waves on oil recovery by using curve twin dipole antenna with four magnetic feeders in the radio frequency region. Two similar core rock samples were use in this study. The porosity and permeability of the core samples were measured by using Poroperm System. Oil saturated core rock samples were kept in tank filled with brine of 10000ppm salinity for efficient oil recovery. These core rock samples were kept at room temperature and 55°C with and without electromagnetic waves. The EM waves emitted by the curve twin antenna with 4 magnetic feeders were able to recover 10.60% of OOIP at room temperature and 29.28% of OOIP at 55°C. Core rock samples without electromagnetic waves give oil recoveries 7.66% of OOIP at room temperature and 23.15% of OOIP at 55°C.

  • A New Weir Skimmer Test for an Oil Recovery Vessel Dr.Kaiyo

    An advanced weir skimmer for spilled oil recovery has been developed by Kinki Regional Bureau, Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport Japan. The new skimmer has an oil/water separation mechanism embedded in it and succeeds in a high concentration oil recovery from the sea surface. It has been installed in a new oil recovery vessel Dr. Kaiyo in March 2007. Prior to its installation, the skimmer's oil recovery performance was closely evaluated by port and airport research institute (PARI) in a real scale oil spill test tank. The tank test has confirmed that the oil skimmer has excellent oil recovery performance, especially a high oil water ratio more than 80% even in severe sea condition. This paper gives mechanical description of the skimmer and detailed results of the full scale tank tests conducted by PARI as well as an overview of the vessel Dr.Kaiyo.
