EVALUATION OF OIL FOAM FOR USE AS A DISPLACING MEDIUM FOR OIL RECOVERY IN POROUS MEDIA. II. THE DISPLACEMENT OF OIL BY EXTERNALLY GENERATED OIL FOAM.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The displacement of oil by externally generated oil foam in porous media was experimentally studied. Injection pressure in all tests was near 830 psi. The porous medium was represented by a naturally consolidated Berea sandstone core. Displacement tests were run for three different foam qualities under a fixed imposed pressure differential. Test results have shown that oil recoveries observed by oil foam displacement were appreciably higher than those observed by gas drive or by water drive.
