Introduction

Monitoring injections is important for optimal reservoir management of any enhanced oil recovery. Monitoring is of particular importance in the case of steam injections, which often have small economic margins and where significant material property changes take place. Imaging can be used to optimize the injection, make informed reservoir engineering decisions, and help understand the mechanics of the injection.

Monitoring the steam chamber growth is critical in optimizing heavy-oil recovery; it ensures that the stimulation is confined to the reservoir and helps identify bypassed regions. Steam injection results in geomechanical strains associated with increased pore pressure, thermal stress changes,...
