In waterflooded reservoirs under active scale management, produced-water samples are routinely collected and analyzed, yielding information on the evolving variations in chemical composition. In this interdisciplinary paper, the analyses of produced-water compositional data from the Miller Field are presented to investigate possible geochemical reactions taking place within the reservoir. The 1D and 2D theoretical model has been developed to test the modeling of barium sulfate precipitation implemented in the streamline simulator FrontSim.
This paper presents an approach to optimize the recovery factor and sweep efficiency in a waterflooding process by automating the optimum injection rate calculations for water injectors using streamline simulation. A streamline simulator is an appropriate tool for modern waterflood management and can be used to determine the dynamic interaction between injector and producer pairs, which will vary over time based on sweep efficiency and operational changes. A streamline simulator can be used to identify injectors, which are not supporting production and contributing mainly to water producing wells.

Received: 17 November Accepted: 1 February Main parts of oil and gas reserves are stored in fractured reservoirs. Simulation of multiphase flow in fractured reservoirs requires a large amount of calculations due to the complexity, reservoir scale and heterogeneity of the rock properties. The accuracy and speed of the streamline method for simulating hydrocarbon reservoirs at field scale make it more applicable than conventional Eulerian simulators using finite difference and finite element techniques. Conventional simulators for fractured reservoirs consume a great deal of time and expense and require powerful CPUs like supercomputers.
In waterflooded reservoirs under active scale management, produced-water samples are routinely collected and analyzed, yielding information on the evolving variations in chemical composition. In this interdisciplinary paper, the analyses of produced-water compositional data from the Miller Field are presented to investigate possible geochemical reactions taking place within the reservoir. The 1D and 2D theoretical model has been developed to test the modeling of barium sulfate precipitation implemented in the streamline simulator FrontSim. A completely 3D streamline simulation study for the Miller Field is presented to evaluate brine flow and mixing processes occurring in the reservoir by use of an available history-matched streamline reservoir-simulation model integrated with produced-water chemical data. Conservative natural tracers were added to the modeled injection water IW , and then the displacement of IW and the behaviors of the produced water in two given production wells were studied further. In addition, the connectivity between producers and injectors was investigated on the basis of the comparison of production behavior calculated by the reservoir model with produced-water chemical data. Finally, a simplified model of barite-scale precipitation was included in the streamline simulation, and the calculation results with and without considering barite precipitation were compared with the observed produced-water chemical data.
Al-Najem, A. Streamline and streamtube methods have been used in fluid flow computations for many years. Early applications for hydrocarbon reservoir simulation were first reported by Fay and Pratts in the s. Streamline-based flow simulation has made significant advances in the last 15 years. Today's simulators are fully three-dimensional and fully compressible and they account for gravity as well as complex well controls. Most recent advances also allow for compositional and thermal displacements. In this paper, we present a comprehensive review of the evolution and advancement of streamline simulation technology.
