Summary

Theoretical and numerical modeling results show the feasibility of residual oil mapping and dynamic monitoring of steam or water driven reservoirs by using the electric source TEM method. A pilot survey of customized array TEM was carried out over a steam driven heavy oil reservoir. Field results confirm that the resistivity anomalies are well correlated with residual oil saturation.
