A new system for artificial vibration simulation was designed and the effect of artificial vibration on core permeabilities, oil recovery factors under different stage of waterflooding was studied. Experiments show that action of artificial vibration can improve the permeability of cores and oil recovery factors. The oil recovery increment was related to the vibrating parameters including vibrating frequency, amplitude and time. Some oilfield applications and new trends of Artificial Vibration Oil Production (AVOP) were also introduced.
