PE Distinguished Seminar Series: Transport Mechanisms for Oil Shale and Implications for the Solvent Huff’n-Puff Process

September 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Marquez Hall, 1600 Arapahoe St.
Golden, CO 80401 United States

Dr. Russell Johns Penn State University, Visiting Scholar at Colorado School of Mines Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) by solvent injection offers significant potential to increase recovery from shale oil reservoirs, which are typically between 3 and 7% OOIP. The rather sparse literature on this topic typically models these tight reservoirs based on conventional reservoir processes and mechanisms, such as by convective transport using Darcy’s law, even though there is little physical justification for this treatment. This talk will discuss a…
