A two-dimensional, multicomponent, multiphase, compositional reservoir simulator has been developed, tested, and applied to micellar/polymer flooding. The simulator is even more complete in its physical description than the 1-D version previously published.1,2  The simulator is described and discussed. Applications to various field scale conditions are illustrated. Factors simulated include reservoir heterogeneity, crossflow, dispersion, injection rate, and various process variables such as slug size, polymer drive grading and size, salinity gradient, and mobility ratio.
