Title

Air Injection in Shale and Tight Oil Reservoirs

Abstract

This chapter discusses the viability of air injection for conventional reservoirs as an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technology by discussing its EOR mechanisms, major impact factors, and successful projects. Then, the viability and feasibility of its application for EOR in unconventional reservoirs are presented. Some reservoir simulation study results are presented to validate the observations. This discussion of viability is only from a technical perspective and does not consider economics.
