The Application of Water-flood Technology for Different Oil Fields

Water-flooding is perhaps the most common method of secondary recovery, in which water is injected into the reservoir formation to displace residual oil. The water from injection wells physically sweeps the displaced oil to adjacent production wells. In this study, three different fields from different locations were studied for a possible water-flooding operation using software. Through the results obtained from the application, certain predictions were obtained about the water-flood performance of the oil fields studied. It was concluded that the water-flood is a good solution as a secondary recovery project for the fields studied.
