EOR using foam

Você está em: Research Projects > EOR using foam

Mathematical and computational modeling of foam injection as an enhanced oil recovery technique applied to Brazil pre-salt reservoirs

International collaboration between UFJF (Federal University of Juiz de Fora, Brazil), TU Delft (Delft University of Technology, Holland) and PUC-Rio (Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) supported by Shell Brazil


The main objectives of this 4-year project are:EOR

The main deliverables of this project are:


The project has a strongly multidisciplinary appeal bringing together the mathematical analysis and numerical simulations performed in UFJF, experimental investigation realized in PUC-Rio and physical modeling assisted by renowned experts in foam EOR from TU Delft.
