Effects of Lithofaciesand Reservoir Heterogeneity on Improved Oil Recovery Processes

In this presentation, a new method is introduced to study the effect of reservoir heterogeneity on oil recovery processes. It is reported that the oil RFs of a FU model are much lower than those of a CU model. The order of layering is more effective in LSW and CO2 LSWAG, compared to WF and CO2 flooding. A CU, two CU and a FU-CU sequence models produce at a higher oil RF and lower water production than the FU, CU-FU and two FU sequence models.
