Title

The Effects of Nanopore Confinement on Different Enhanced Oil Recovery Methods

Abstract

This chapter presents the effect of nanopore confinement on phase behavior and pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) properties of unconventional reservoir fluids. The impacts of pore confinement on the production performance of shale wells during the primary production stage are also discussed. Moreover, the positive and negative impacts of nanopore confinement on different enhanced oil recovery methods are extensively explained. This chapter presents how pore confinement should be implemented in the reservoir simulation to accurately mimic the performance of miscible gas injection in unconventional reservoirs.
