To generate the valid numerical simulation model, the sufficient amount of gathered data from the oil field is required. However, it is not always possible to acquire such data at the initial stage of project development. Buckley and Leverett (Pet Trans AIME 146(01):107–116, 1942) developed the analytical solution allowing to easily assess the oil displacement efficiency. One of the main assumptions of this model is incompressibility of oil and injected fluid. For slightly compressible water…
