  • In this paper, experimental analyses are conducted into the GDI soot oxidation characteristics as dependent on engine operating conditions. Soot is sampled at various engine operating conditions of a commercial 2.4 L GDI engine with a naturally aspirated, homogeneous, and stoichiometric operation strategy. The oxidation reactivity, ash composition, and carbon nanostructure of the GDI soot samples are analyzed using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), scanning electron microscope–energy-dispersive spectroscopy (SEM-EDS), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM), and Raman spectroscopy. Based on the analyses, a global GDI soot oxidation mechanism is proposed which includes the effects of soluble organic fractions (SOF)/weakly bonded carbon (WBC), andmore » three types of ash on GDI soot oxidation. The results show that GDI soot contains an order of magnitude higher ash fraction than does conventional diesel soot, and oxidation reactivity is significantly enhanced by the catalytic effects of ash, as a function of ash content in soot. A modified empirical kinetic correlation for GDI soot oxidation is suggested on the basis of the results, and the modified kinetic correlation predicts the GDI soot oxidation rate accurately for various engine operation points at wide ranges of soot conversion and temperature without modifying kinetic parameters. The kinetic parameters are determined from isothermal and non-isothermal thremogravimetric analysis (TGA) soot oxidation tests; the methods are elucidated in detail.« less
  • This paper describes a successful steam-injection vertical expansion recently implemented in California`s Midway Sunset field with slim-hole injection wells. Slim-hole injectors were chosen over conventional injectors to reduce capital investment. The savings allowed drilling of additional injection wells, which were used to optimize steam placement on the basis of reservoir architecture. Two vertical expansion designs were compared at a fixed cost with either conventional or slim-hole steam injectors. The conventional well design had 10 injection wells and three temperature-observation wells. The steam drive targets were two steeply dipping turbidite depositional lobes containing multiple, vertically segregated sand bodies. Selection of conventionalmore » well locations was based on the upper primary reservoir compromising injection location in the lower secondary reservoir. The slim-hole plan, consisting of 38 injectors and 10 temperature-observation wells, was selected because of its advantages. The capital cost for the slim-hole wells was about the same as the conventional program. Approximately three slim-hole injectors could be drilled for the cost of one conventional injector. With additional wells, injector locations were optimized for both the upper primary and lower secondary reservoirs. These additional injection wells provided improved profile control and steamflood management of the individual sand bodies within each reservoir. As a result of the vertical expansion, incremental production has increased steadily since project startup.« less
