Title (EN) METHODS OF DETERMINING A SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF AN INJECTED TRACER MATERIAL WITHIN A SUBTERRANEAN FORMATION
(FR) PROCÉDÉS DE DÉTERMINATION D'UNE DISTRIBUTION SPATIALE D'UN MATÉRIAU TRACEUR INJECTÉ À L'INTÉRIEUR D'UNE FORMATION SOUTERRAINE
Abstract:
(EN) Methods of determining a spatial distribution of an injected tracer material (60) within a subterranean formation (40) are disclosed, including flowing the tracer material, which includes a tracer electrical capacitance that differs from a formation electrical capacitance of a region of the subterranean formation, into the region of the subterranean formation via a wellbore (50). Subsequent to the flowing, the methods also include providing an input electromagnetic signal (92) to the region of the subterranean formation. Responsive to the providing, the methods further include receiving an output electromagnetic signal (97) from the subterranean formation. The methods further include determining the spatial distribution of the tracer material (60) within the subterranean formation (40) based, at least in part, on the output electromagnetic signal (97).
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés de détermination d'une distribution spatiale d'un matériau traceur injecté (60) à l'intérieur d'une formation souterraine (40). Lesdits procédés comprennent l'écoulement du matériau traceur, qui présente une capacité électrique de traceur qui diffère d'une capacité électrique de formation d'une région de la formation souterraine, dans la région de la formation souterraine par l'intermédiaire d'un puits de forage (50). Suite à l'écoulement, les procédés comprennent également la fourniture d'un signal électromagnétique d'entrée (92) à la région de la formation souterraine. En réponse à la fourniture, les procédés comprennent en outre la réception d'un signal électromagnétique de sortie (97) en provenance de la formation souterraine. Les procédés comprennent en outre la détermination de la distribution spatiale du matériau traceur (60) à l'intérieur de la formation souterraine (40) sur la base, au moins en partie, du signal électromagnétique de sortie (97).
