Laboratory measurements of ultrasonic velocities in CO2 saturated brines
MetadataShow full item record
The acoustic velocities in CO2-saturated brines were investigated and compared with velocities measured in pure brines in the range of temperatures (30 - 70 °C), pressures (2 - 38 MPa) and salinities (0 -100,000 ppm). It has been found that CO2 dissolution significantly changes the acoustic properties of brine. This change can be accounted for by a simple linear empirical equation.

Sari, Ahmad; Xie, Sam; Chen, Yongqiang; Saeedi, Ali; Pooryousefy, Ehsan (2017)Wettability alteration appears to be the main mechanism of low salinity water flooding in carbonate reservoirs. However, what factor(s) controls the wettability alteration is not clearly defined. We hypothesized that zeta ...
