The applications of foam are 3-D on a field scale. However, most previous research focuses only on properties of foam in 1-D. Experiments were performed in 3-D, and the compositional reservoir simulator UTCHEM was modified to predict foam flow in 3-D. The 3-D experiments demonstrated that, under similar experimental conditions, the mobility of foam in a 3-D tank is greater than that in a 1-D column. They also showed that foam greatly increases lateral gas distribution along the bottom of the… CONTINUE READING
