APPLICATION OF FRONTAL DISPLACEMENT MECHANISM IN MICROBIAL ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY

ABSTRACT

This project work is on application of frontal displacement mechanism in microbial enhanced oil recoveryMicrobial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) is a tertiary oil extraction technology allowing the partial recovery of the commonly residual two-thirds of oil, thus increasing the life of mature oil reservoirs.
Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) is a biological based technology consisting in manipulating function or structure, or both, of microbial environments existing in oil reservoirs. The ultimate aim of MEOR is to improve the recovery of oil entrapped in porous media while increasing economic profits. Microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) is a tertiary oil recovery process where microorganisms and/or their metabolic by products are utilized for the mobilization of crude oil trapped in mature oil formations. The proposed MEOR mechanisms leading to oil recovery fall into two broad categories: (Mechanism 1) alteration of oil/water/rock interfacial properties and (Mechanism 2) changes in flow behavior due to bioclogging. Numerous reports show the efficacy of MEOR at the lab-scale; however, a complete understanding of the mechanisms involved is lacking, and the effectiveness of each mechanism for different reservoir parameters (such as wettability) is unknown.
