A prototype simulation approach, with appropriate scaling factors, has been devised so that prototype simulations can be scaled to yield the performance of individual sub-segments (zones) within wells. The predicted performance of the sub-segments are summed to yield pattern element performance and these in turn are summed to yield a performance forecast for the area of interest. The prototype approach has been used to generate waterflood and miscible flood performance predictions for a portion of the Virginia Hills Beaverhill Lake Unit.
