Laboratory and Theoretical Modeling of Diverting Agent Behavior Academic Article uri icon


  • This study describes the laboratory and mathematical models of diverting agent behavior and the results obtained with these models. Among the conclusions drawn from this study are: (1) the finely ground, oil-soluble-resin diverting agents are effective for matrix diversion; (2) diverting agent added continuously to treating fluid equalizes the flow to all zones; and (3) diverting agent injected in small stages ahead of treating fluids can cause a highly skewed distribution of injected fluid.
