Summary of "Rheological Model and Transition Velocity Equation of a Polymer Solution in a Partial Pressure Tool."

In order to solve the problem of the low production degree of oil layers caused by an excessively large permeability difference between layers during polymer flooding, we propose partial pressure injection technology using a partial pressure tool. The partial pressure tool controls the injection pressure of a polymer solution through a throttling effect to improve the oil displacement effect in high- and low-permeability reservoirs. In order to analyze the influence of the partial pressure tool on the rheological property of the polymer solution, a physical model of the tool is established, the rheological equation of the polymer solution in the partial pressure tool is established according to force balance analysis, the transition velocity equation for the polymer solution is established based on the concept of stability factor, and the influence of varying the structural parameters of the partial pressure tool on the rheological property of the polymer solution is analyzed. The results show that the pressure drop of the polymer solution increases with the decrease of the front groove angle of the partial pressure tool (from 60° to 30°), reaching a maximum of 1.77 MPa at a front groove angle of 30°. Additionally, the pressure drop of the polymer solution increases with the decrease of the outer cylinder radius (from 25 to 24 mm), reaching a maximum of 1.32 MPa at a radius of 24 mm. However, the apparent viscosity of the polymer solution before and after flowing through the partial pressure tool does not change for any of the studied parameters. These research results are of great significance to research on partial pressure injection technology and enhanced oil recovery.
