Research

Ramey Thermal EOR Laboratory
Ramey Thermal EOR laboratory is located on the 5th floor of the Richardson Building at Texas A&M College Station Campus
Fluid Characterization
Viscosity and Density Measurements at varying temperature ranges
Rock Characterization
Reservoir Rock Characterization before and after any recovery processes
Solvent-Steam
Solvent Steam Flooding set-up to investigate pore-scale displacement.
SAGD & Solvent-SAGD
Solvent-Steam Processes are proposed to reduce environmental impact of steam generation by minimizing GHG emissions and reducing injected steam amount
Wettability & Residual Oil
Wettability and Residual Oil Saturation Determination
In-Situ Combustion
Combustion tube tests results are used to calculate the field-scale design parameters. Porosity and permeability variations can be determined with X-Ray Computed Tomography
Fluid Front Movement
The fluid front movement, the fluid saturations in different zones, variations in porosity and permeability, fracture formation can be determined with CT numbers
Volumetric Sweep
Laboratory-Scale experiments mainly aim to determine the pore-scale displacement. Volumetric-Scale (Macroscopic Displacement) in general is determined through numerical simulations. To better accuracy of numerical simulations, history matching with 3D lab or field data is necessary. We have capabilities to determine three-dimensional flow in the laboratory.
SARA Separation
Initial Oil Samples and Produced Oil Samples can be characterized based on their SARA (Saturates, Aromatics, Resins, and Asphaltenes) fractions
Asphaltenes & Emulsions
We characterize asphaltenes and emulsions originated from any thermal EOR processes. We are the only laboratory measuring dielectric constant of oil components for therma EOR
Management of Oil Field Water
Oil Field Waters are characterized and proper treatment methods are proposed based on the results.
