On evaluating IOR efficiency in terms of cyclic flooding and polymer cyclic flooding

V.V. Baushin, I.N. Khakimzyanov, A.I. Nikiforov


The effectiveness of cyclic and polymer-cyclic technologies for heterogeneous layered oil reservoirs during different periods of development was evaluated. Computational experiments were carried out on the Tempest-More hydrodynamic simulator by ROXAR. It was revealed that the estimated value of additional oil production from the impact on reservoirs significantly depends on the moment when this assessment is made. So the best variant of the technology at the end of the effect from the impact may not be the best by the final ORF.

Key words:

cyclic waterflooding, polymer waterflooding, injection half-period, technological efficiency, oil recovery factor
