EOR studies are aided by accelerating rate calorimeters according to this free datasheet.
The instruments are illustrated and described to aid EOR as they characterize in-situ combustion potential of oils and determine kinetic parameters under reservoir conditions. They also help study spontaneous ignition possibility, determine parameters to be used in numerical simulation, and gain information on LTO/HTO regions.
Calorimeter operation is presented along with applications which include closed vessel tests with oil field samples. Modification of the instrument by adding capability to flow gas over or through a sample is cited to fundamentally enhance potential applications and results value.
