Abstract

This paper examines the impact of heterogeneity on Low Salinity Water flooding (LSWF) for a realistic field scale models. We examine various scenarios of permeability variations to cover a wide range of heterogeneity possibilities. Since heterogeneity is known to induce fingering and crossflow effects at the fine scale during conventional water flooding. We analyse these effects where the LSWF process is related to a change in wettability, to determine what should be captured, in terms of solute dispersion, in typical coarse scale simulation models.
