Determination of Minimum Miscibility Pressure (MMP) using PVTi Software, Eclipse 300 and Empirical Correlations

Vahid Karamnia; Siavash Ashoori

Volume 10, Issue 1 , January 2021, , Pages 107-126

  < p>One of the most important factors through the miscible gas injection process is to determine the Minimum Miscibility Pressure. According to the definition, the minimum miscibility pressure is the minimum pressure at which, at a constant temperature, the oil and gas injected can dissolve together ...  Read More

Simulation and Economic Evaluation of Polygeneration System for Coproduction of Power, Steam, CH3OH, H2, and CO2 from Flare Gas

Mostafa Jafari; Mohammad shahab Deljoo; Ali Vatani

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 93-114

  Today, one of the challenging issues all over the world is the appropriate use of flare gases in oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. Burning flare gases having high heating value results in economic losses and the pollution of the environment. There are several methods to use flare gases; the heat ...  Read More

A Numerical Investigation into the Effect of Controllable Parameters on the Natural Gas Storage in a Weak Reservoir-type Aquifer

Arezou Jafari; Peyman Sadirli; Reza Gharibshahi; Esmaeel Kazemi Tooseh; Masoud Samivand; Ali Teymouri

Volume 8, Issue 1 , January 2019, , Pages 11-31

  Natural gas storage process in aquifer, due to fluid flow behavior of gas and water in the porous medium and because of their contact with each other under reservoir conditions, faces several challenges. Therefore, there should be a clear understanding of the injected gas behavior before and after the ...  Read More

Modeling and Simulation of Kuhni Extraction Column Using a Rate-based Model

Amir Hosein Tahershamsi; Ahad Ghaemi; Mansour Shirvani

Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2016, , Pages 53-67

  In this study, liquid-liquid extraction process in a Kuhni extraction column was modeled and simulated. A non-equilibrium dynamic model was developed for modeling liquid-liquid extraction processes based on a rate-based model. The model equations are inclusive of partial and ordinary differential equations ...  Read More

Simulation and Assessment of Surfactant Injection in Fractured Reservoirs: A Sensitivity Analysis of some Uncertain Parameters

Mohammad Hasan Badizad; Ahmad Reza Zanganeh; Amir Hossein Saeedi Dehaghani

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 13-26

  Fracture reservoirs contain most of the oil reserves of the Middle East. Such reservoirs are poorly understood and recovery from fractured reservoirs is typically lower than those from conventional reservoirs. Many efforts have been made to enhance the recovery and production potential of these reservoirs. ...  Read More

Modeling and Simulation of Claus Unit Reaction Furnace

Maryam Pahlavan; Mohammad Ali Fanaei

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 42-52

  Reaction furnace is the most important part of the Claus sulfur recovery unit and its performance has a significant impact on the process efficiency. Too many reactions happen in the furnace and their kinetics and mechanisms are not completely understood; therefore, modeling reaction furnace is difficult ...  Read More
