Abstract
IMPROVED PREDICTIONS OF PETROLEUM RESERVOIR PERFORMANCE ARE NEEDED TO REDUCE THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH FIELD SCALE MISCIBLE FLOODING. A MAJOR SHORTCOMING OF CURRENT PREDICTION TECHNIQUES IS THE FAILURE TO ACCURATELY MODEL THE EFFECTS OF MOBILITY RATIO AND VISCOUS FINGERING ON VOLUMETRIC SWEEP AND DISPLACEMENT EFFICIENCY. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP IMPROVED NUMERICAL TECHNIQUES FOR THIS PROCESS AND EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING DISPERSION RELATIONSHIPS TO MODEL THESE EFFECTS.
