WATERFLOOD-Core flood system for secondary recovery by water


The WATERFLOOD is a fully automated core flooding system designed to evaluate and optimize secondary recovery methods such as water flooding and dry gas injection. The apparatus performs unsteady-state, core flooding experiments with both liquids and gases, on natural and composite core samples at reservoir conditions of temperature and pressure. Critical parameters such as displacement and sweep efficiencies can be derived from the results. The system includes three fluid transfer vessels, an injection pump, nitrogen injection line, hydrostatic core holder, confining pump, back-pressure regulator, air bath, pressure measurement system, ambient fluid video separator, wet gasmeter and data acquisition system.
