... in the Athabasca region (Canada). The approach consists of three steps: 1/ the construction of an initial static model, 2/ the simulation of the thermal production of heavy oil with two coupled fluid-flow and geomechanical models, 3/ the production of synthetic seismic maps at different steps of steam injection...

.... The phases might be segregated such that some pores carry the upward flowing phases, while other pores carry downward flows. When this mechanism is valid, Darcy's Law applies only locally to region of upward or downward flow. The two mechanisms result in substantially different phase velocities. Simulators...
