Project Objectives

The goal of this project is to investigate a new, “mini-waterflood” strategy for enhancing oil recovery from small, mature fields. The project combines reservoir simulation and core displacement studies to evaluate the feasibility of the mini-flood concept. The broader objective is to provide small producers with knowledge and tools needed to improve recovery and extend the life of small, depleted oil fields.
