Foam injection is widely applied in amounts of fields to drilling, production, and formation protection. Sometimes, the application result is disappointing, which is caused by the failure of bubble generation in foam flooding. Therefore, it is necessary to seek ways for improving the performance of foam injection. An increased disturbance to the stratum, like the vibration caused by a seismic oil recovery technique, would be helpful. In the current work, the seepage of air foam in porous media under low frequency (LF) vibration is analyzed with experiments and an investigation of bubble creation\destruction rate change is carried out using mathematical modeling. The resistance factor of foam flooding under indoor vibration increases by 1.5 times and the valid time is obviously extended compared with when no vibration is used. The optimal vibrating acceleration and frequency of 0.7 m\s2 and the natural frequency of the cores–nearby of 18 Hz are achieved in the indoor experiments. Under vibration, the bubble generation rate increases, while bubble break rate by internal expansion or by gas diffusion and transfer decreases. An interesting phenomenon is also observed, which might develop a power level formula between the initially defined dimensionless MRF (maximum foam flooding resistance factor) and dimensionless DMRF (duration of maximum foam flooding resistance factor). The power product and sum of the power exponents of the above formula both equal approximately to 1. With the assistance of LF vibration, the increase of security, adaptability, and efficiency in foam injection may improve the reservoir recovery and extend its application.
