Modelling low-salinity oil recovery mechanisms using an ion dissociation model

Abstract:

Experimental evidence shows that injecting low-salinity water during the oil recovery process can lead to an increase in the amount of oil recovered. Numerous mechanisms have been proposed to explain this effect, and, in recent years, two which have gained notable support are multicomponent ionic exchange (MIE) and pH increase. Both mechanisms involve ion exchange reactions within the thin film of water separating the oil in a reservoir from the clay minerals on the surface of the reservoir r...
