Abstract

Local displacement efficiency from CO 2 gas injection is highly dependent on the minimum miscibility pressure (MMP). Correlations are often used to estimate the MMP where the injected fluid may or may not contain impurities such as methane. New MMP correlations for the displacement of multicomponent oil by CO 2 and impure CO 2 were presented. The approach uses recently developed analytical theory for MMP calculations from EOS to generate MMP correlations for displacements by pure and impure CO 2. MMP for a wide range of temperatures and reservoir fluids could be calculated quickly and accurately without introducing uncertainties associated with slim-tube MMP and other numerical methods. The new correlations are significantly more accurate and applicable than currently used correlations. This is an abstract of a paper was presented at the SPE-DOE 14th Improved Symposium Oil Recovery Proceedings (Tulsa, OK 4/17-21/2004).
