Abstract It is still uncertain to what extent pore scale mechanisms, such as the counter and co-current nature of multiphase flow, the trapping mechanisms, the distribution of phases, and heat transfer mechanisms affect the process of isothermal and non-isothermal gravity drainage dominated oil and heavy-oil recovery. This type of processes is encountered during gas injection into oil reservoirs for enhanced oil recovery under isothermal conditions. Steam injection in thick reservoirs where… CONTINUE READING
