Paper Number: SPE-184980-MS
... Abstract The steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) method is an efficient way of producing oil from many of Canada's Oil Sands reservoirs. Predicting oil production and steam injection rates is required for planning and managing a SAGD operation. While this can be done by simulating the fluid...
