Abstract

The effects of production rate, oil saturation, and rock permeability on sulfur deposition during CO 2 flooding was studied. Sulfur and asphaltene content increased oil viscosity of crude oils for different temperatures. Increasing the production rate of sulfuric crude oil under CO 2 miscible flooding decreased rock petrophysical properties of porosity and permeability and also decreases ultimate oil recovery. Lower permeability reservoir rocks recovered more oil than those of higher permeability for the same applied production rate under CO 2 miscible flooding. The results suggest that application of CO 2 flooding to these reservoirs could exacerbate damage to the reservoir porous rocks. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th European Formation Damage Conference (Scheveningen, The Netherlands 5/27-29/2009).
