9 A Comparison of Crisp And Fuzzy Logic Methods for Screening Enhanced Oil Recovery Techniques

W. J. Parkinsonand K. H. DuerreLos Alamos National Laboratory

9.1 Introduction

Reasons for studying enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques are summarized in a 1986 paper by Stosur [1]. When his paper was published, only 27% of all the oil discovered in the United States had been produced. Under current economic conditions, only about 6% more will be produced using existing technology. The remaining 67% is a target for EOR. Currently, about 6% of our daily oil production comes from EOR. Even in these times of reduced concern of an energy crisis, these numbers indicate that the study of EOR processes can be rewarding because of the potentially high payoffs. ...
