In the new 2017.11 version of DeepSim there has been a significant change.
In previous versions, all injector wells used to be water injection wells. No other forms of injection were allowed. In the new 2017.11 version, this has changed. You can now specify the mass composition of the fluid being injected per injector well.
By being able to specify the injection component mass fractions, you can now conveniently model:
- Water injection (already possible)
- Gas injection (with any composition – *new*)
- Oil injection (with any given composition – *new*)
- Any combination of the above (example: inject water with gas simultaneously *new*).
An example of a injection well that simultaneously injects water and gas is given below.
To make the well inject water and gas at the same time, the mass fraction for the H2O components has been set to 0.8 and the mass fraction for the C1 component is set to 0.2. Since the subsurface properties of the fluids being injected depend on the reservoir conditions, DeepSim conveniently plots the fluid properties for a range of pressures. This allows you to set the injection composition such that the properties of the fluids you are injecting meet the specifications.
The new functionality in the 2017.11 DeepSim version thus allows you to model different EOR/IOR mechanisms such as gas injection and WAG, conveniently from your Android phone or tablet.
For those that have already installed DeepSim on their devices, the 2017.11 version should automatically be installed via the Google Play store. For those that have not installed DeepSim yet, you can obtain it by following this link or clicking on the Play store logo on this page.
