Viscometer Measurement: A Glimpse into Reservoir Fluid Dynamics

Sep 26, 2023 11:41:02 AM / by Admin posted in viscosity control, oil reservoir viscosity, viscosity management, ViscoLab PVT+


Efficient oil reservoir analysis relies on understanding the behavior of reservoir fluids under varying conditions. This is where viscometer measurement improves the process, offering a window into the viscosity and flow properties of these fluids. Cambridge Viscosity’s ViscoLab PVT+ viscometer equips reservoir engineers with the ability to assess the fluid’s viscosity, even under extreme pressure and temperature conditions, mirroring real-world reservoir scenarios.

In mature, oil-producing reservoirs, conditions like natural fissions in the reservoir rock or resistance from heavier or more viscous oils require enhanced oil recovery (EOR) injection techniques.  Polymer flooding is one EOR technique that is widely used because it can significantly improve oil recovery over conventional flooding. It uses polymer solutions in an aqueous medium to increase oil recovery by reducing the water-to-oil mobility ratio. Managing the viscosity of the EOR polymers at the well head supports efficient oil production, while helping to reduce the amount of EOR polymer needed.
