LSW is an important technique for the future EORs. The new mechanistic model includes well explains important observations in laboratory & field tests, and provides excellent matches with various coreflooding experiments. Closed-loop modeling workflow is a powerful tool for Interpretation, Design, History Match, Robust Optimization, and Uncertainty Assessmentof LSW, Hybrid LSW. CO2LSWAG is a promising EOR technique since it combines the benefits of gas and low salinity water floods, promotes the synergy between these processes, could overcome the late production problem the conventional WAG.
