Improving well productivity in an Egyptian oil field using radial drilling technique

  Radial drilling (RD) technique utilizes hydraulic energy to create several lateral holes in different directions and levels with several lengths. These lateral holes are made by milling the casing with small bit then extending these holes laterally using high pressure hydraulic jetting. This work presents full descriptions and analysis for RD applications in one of the Egyptian oil field. Moreover, it...

Development of a new surfactant-polymer system and its implementation in Dagang oilfield

  In this paper, a new surfactant–polymer enhanced oil recovery (EOR) system is investigated for the feasibility of injection in Dagang. The newSP flooding system has been designed and developed for Dagang oilfield with Dagang petroleum sulfonate (SLPS) as the primary ingredient. The dynamic behavior of the system and the interactions of the system components have been investigated through...

Flue gas enhanced oil recovery (EOR) as a high efficient development technology for offshore heavy oil in China

  China Offshore oilfield is rich in heavy oil, M oilfield in Bohai Bay is the most thick heavy oil field in offshore by far with the formation oil viscosity as high as 450 ~ 950 mPa.s.  Using conventional oil field development (depletion and water flooding), the heavy oil field exposed its limits, such as low productivity of single well, low production rate and low predicted recovery. As is well known,...
