An Evaluation of Rock Integrity and Fault Reactivation in the Cap Rock and Reservoir Rock Due to Pressure Variations

Mohammad Abdideh; Yaghob Hamid

Volume 8, Issue 3 , July 2019, , Pages 18-39

  Cap rocks are dams which can prevent the upward movement of hydrocarbons. They have disparities and weaknesses including discontinuities, crushed areas, and faults. Gas injection is an effective mechanism for oil recovery and pore pressure. With increasing pore pressure, normal stress is reduced, and ...  Read More

Maryam Ghorbani; Mohammad Reza Khorsand; Mohsen Masihi

Volume 3, Issue 4 , October 2014, , Pages 41-54

  The performance of water flooding can be investigated by using either detail numerical modeling or simulation, or simply through the analytical Buckley-Leverett (BL) model. The Buckley-Leverett analytical technique can be applied to one-dimensional homogeneous systems. In this paper, the impact of heterogeneity ...  Read More
