Abstract

In order to study the flow of water in an underground oil reservoir, tritiated water was injected in a well and, subsequently, tritium was determined in the water produced by the surrounding wells. Since the specific radioactivity of the water produced by the more remote wells appeared to be rather low, partly owing to dilution of the tritium water by the water present in the formation, enrichment methods were used, in order to increase counting sensitivity. Three methods of enrichment were examined: exchange with ethanol, conversion to toluene, and electrolysis. The latter method proved to be the most useful. The tritium was determined with a liquid scintillation counter; the scintillator consisted of a toluene-ethanol (2:1) mixture with DPO and POPOP, the water sample being dissolved in this liquid. Some statistical problems in connexion with the minimum detectable specific activity and the reduction of background are discussed briefly.

(author) [French] Pour etudier la repartition des eaux dans un gisement de petrole, on a injecte de l'eau tritiee dans un puits et l'on a ensuite cherche a deceler la presence de tritium dans l'eau extraite des puits voisins. Comme la radioactivite specifique de l'eau des puits les plus eloignes semblait assez faible, en partie a cause de la dilution de l'eau tritiee par l'eau presente dans la formation, on a eu recours a diverses methodes d'enrichissement. Trois methodes ont ete examinees: echange avec l'ethanol, conversion en toluene et electrolyse. C'est cette derniere qui s'est revelee la plus utile. Le tritium a ete mesure avec un scintillometre a liquide; le scintillateur etait un melange toluene-ethanol (2:1) additionne de DPO et de POPOP, l'echantillon d'eau etant dissous dans ce liquide. Les auteurs examinent brievement quelques problemes statistiques relatifs a l'activite specifique minimum qui peut etre decelee et a la reduction du bruit de fond. (author) [Spanish] Con el proposito de estudiar el flujo de agua en un yacimiento petrolifero, se inyecto agua tritiada en uno de los pozos y, seguidamente, se determino la cantidad de tritio presente en el agua extraida de los pozos circundantes. Como la radiactividad especifica del agua procedente de los pozos mas alejados parecia ser relativamente baja, debido en parte a la dilucion del agua tritiada por el agua presente en la formacion geologica, se aplicaron metodos de enriquecimiento con miras a aumentar la sensibilidad del recuento. Se estudiaron los tres metodos siguientes: intercambio con etanol, transformacion en tolueno y electrolisis. Este ultimo metodo resulto ser el mas util. El tritio se determino con un contador de centelleo liquido; la sustancia de centelleo, en la que se disolvio la muestra de agua, consistio en una mezcla de tolueno y etanol (2:1) adicionado de DPO y POPOP. (author) [Russian] Dlya togo, chtoby izuchit' techenie vody v podzemnom neftyanom rezervuare, byla pushchena nasyshchennaya tritiem voda v skvazhinu, i vposledstvii tritij byl obnaruzhen v vode, vzyatoj iz okruzhayushchikh kolodtsev. Poskol'ku udel'naya radioaktivnost' vody, vzyatoj iz bolee otdalennykh kolodtsev, yavlyaetsya, kak kazhetsya, dovol'no nizkoj, otchasti blagodarya razzhizheniyu nasyshchennoj tritiem vody, vodoj, nakhodyashchejsya v obrazovanii, byli ispol'zovany metody obogashcheniya dlya togo, chtoby uvelichit' raschetnuyu chuvstvitel'nost'. Byli izucheny tri metoda obogashcheniya: obmen s ehtanolom, konversiya v toluol i ehlektroliz. Poslednij metod okazalsya naibolee poleznym. Tritij byl obnaruzhen pri pomoshchi zhidkostnogo stsintillyatsionnogo schetchika; stsintillyatsionnyj material sostoyal iz smesi toluola s ehtanolom (2:1) s DPO i ROROR; voda byla rastvorena v ehtoj zhidkosti. Kratko rassmotreny nekotorye statisticheskie problemy v svyazi s minimal'no izmeryaemoj udel'noj aktivnost'yu i umen'sheniem fona. (author)}
