Steamflood design - PetroWiki


Designing a successful steamflooding project requires good candidate selection and an excellent understanding of the mechanisms by which recovery is enhanced. Screening criteria for identification of steamflood candidates have been published for many years. Table 1 shows the screening guides from five different sources.[1][2][3][4][5] It is obvious from Table 1 that there is a finite envelope of properties that define successful candidates. However, within that envelope there is a relatively wide spread of values for the indicators.
