The aim of the work is to create representative 1D- and 3D-models of surfactant-polymer flooding, considering the most significant physical and chemical phenomena that occur during this process, and further efficiency evaluation of the method. The paper describes approaches to reproduce and verify laboratory experiments results of recovery factor increase during surfactant-polymer flooding on core samples using 1D-model, as well as approaches to optimize the compositions and injection schemes of chemicals during the efficiency evaluation of the technology on a 3D-model of the pilot site.
