This paper presents the results of a study performed to evaluate nitrogen injection in the offshore Akal oil reservoir. It includes a geological description, measurement of physical properties, model development, mechanistic studies, and three dimensional compositional simulations. Nitrogen injection is being evaluated as a way to accelerate and increase oil recovery, through an improvement of the gravity drainage, main producing mechanism in this reservoir, and by pressure maintenance purposes.
