Field applications of conformance improvement foams - PetroWiki


Included are applications of foam for mobility control and for blocking gas. In 1989, Hirasaki[1] reviewed early steam-foam-drive projects. In 1996, Patzek[2] reviewed the performance of seven steam-foam pilots conducted in California. Early and delayed production responses were discussed for these pilots. Gauglitz et al.[3] review a steam-foam trial conducted at the Midway-Sunset field of California.
