Aqueous foam has been demonstrated to have promise in conformance-control applications. This paper explores the foaming behavior of a CO2-soluble, cationic, amine-based surfactant. In the complete paper, a new assessment of the WAG-hysteresis model, which was developed originally for water-wet conditions, was carried out by automatic history matching of two coreflood experiments in water-wet and mixed-wet conditions. This paper presents an overview of the SACROC Unit’s activity focusing on different carbon dioxide (CO2) injection and water-alternating-gas (WAG) projects that have made the SACROC unit one of the most successful CO2 injection projects in the world.
