Study of Conditions for Polyacrylamide Use in Petroleum Reservoirs: Physical Flow Simulation in Porous Media

Автори: 
Ivonete da Silva, Elizabete Lucas and Francisca de Franca

This article describes the reservoir’s average shear rate calculation and the rheological study of the polymer dispersion under the target reservoir conditions. It also identifies and quantifies the rock-fluid interaction parameters with this reservoir, including the total adsorption, residual resistance factor. The results confirm that the selected polymer is suitable to the target reservoir.
