..., oil production could be impeded by steam breakthrough at one location of the producer and higher liquid level above the other sections of the producer. Various completion methods have been proposed to improve production efficiency. Outflow-control devices (OCDs), such as steam splitters, are used...

..., it was observed that there was a delay in CO 2 breakthrough, associated with a period when only a mixture of methane and nitrogen was produced. This is so because solubility of CO 2 in connate water is considerably higher than that of nitrogen. This leads directly to a higher gas recovery due to a longer...
