• Analytical solutions for forced and spontaneous imbibition accounting for viscous coupling 

      Nesvik, Eirik Kjos (Masteroppgave/UIS-TN-IER/2019;, Master thesis, 2019-06)
      Theoretical and experimental work has shown that fluid mobilities can depend on flow configuration, and are typically lower when fluids flow in opposite directions as compared to when they flow in the same direction. Such ...
    • Effect of Wettability on Waterflooding and Relative Permeability at Slightly Water-Wet Conditions 

      Wathne, Agnes Kahlbom (Masteroppgave/UIS-TN-IER/2019;, Master thesis, 2019-06-14)
      The wettability of a porous system is of high importance when waterflood behavior and relative permeability are investigated, because both will be strongly affected. Adsorption of polar organic components (POC) are responsible ...
    • Effect of Wettability on Waterflooding and Relative Rermeability at Medium Water-Wet Conditions. 

      Harestad, Amalie (Masteroppgave/UIS-TN-IER/2019;, Master thesis, 2019-06-15)
      This project contributes with experimental measurement that could increase our understanding on how relative permeability is affected by wettability during an oil recovery process. Wettability has significant attention ...
    • Reactive Flow Simulation 

      Raaholt, Magnus Kongestøl (Masteroppgave/UIS-TN-IER/2019;, Master thesis, 2019-06-15)
      Sea water-injection in carbonate formations leads to reactive processes that are linked to affecting oil recovery via wettability alteration and chemical compaction. The concentrations of divalent ions, such as Ca2+, Mg2+, ...
    • Reservoir Simulation of Chemical Inflow Tracers in Horizontal Wells 

      Bergo, Cathrine (Masteroppgave/UIS-TN-IER/2019;, Master thesis, 2019-06-14)
      Conventional production logging tools can be challenging to deploy and interpret in long horizontal wells. Inflow tracer technology can address these challenges, by allowing continuous monitoring of the horizontal section. ...
    • Simulation of Water Management Processes 

      Nygård, Jan Inge (Masteroppgave/UIS-TN-IER/2019;, Master thesis, 2019-06-15)
      Conformance control practices are commonly used to tackle issues related with injected fluids bypassing potentially oil-bearing formations, due to the presence of conductive fractures. To improve the prospect of such a ...
    • The effect of wettability on waterflooding and relative permeability at quite water-wet conditions in chalk core 

      Radenkovic, Katarina (Masteroppgave/UIS-TN-IER/2019;, Master thesis, 2019-06)
      The effect of performing waterflooding in chalk has been previously tested with a purpose of Enhanced Oil recovery. Regarding oil recovery processes, rock wettability is the key parameter determining transport of fluid ...
