West Coast PTTC Workshop
  • Project Objective
  • Better prediction of interwell reservoir
    heterogeneity which may lead to increased
    production from Californias heavy oil fields

4
West Coast PTTC Workshop
  • Tasks
  • Measure flow properties analyze fractal
    structure of property distributions
  • Characterize geology (reservoir geometry,
    continuity, and scale) of Coalinga area using
    outcrops and cores
  • Develop 3-D computer models and distribute
    permeability
  • Perform simulation of steam flooding at West
    Coalinga field
