There is renewed interest using combustion for the recovery of medium viscosity oil. In this analytical study we take into account the reaction occurring between the residual petroleum coke and the oxygen contained in the injected air. We also assume the presence of a small amount of immobile liquid phase, which can evaporate. This study can be applied to the recovery of medium and heavy oil off-shore. Physically, we consider a tube of homogeneous porous medium insulated from the sides with no… CONTINUE READING
