...I. Yucel Akkutlu; Yannis C. Yortsos Summary In-situ combustion is a potential method for the recovery of heavy oil. The effect of reservoir heterogeneity, a ubiquitous feature of oil reservoirs, on in-situ combustion has not been systematically addressed in prior studies, however. In this paper, we...

... combustion. Introduction In-situ combustion was probably the first thermal EOR process to be developed (1) . In-situ combustion tube laboratory experiments were conducted as early as 1947 (2,3) , and important field tests were performed by 1958 (4–6) . The first commercial in-situ combustion operation...

... Abstract Large fractions of heavy oil reserves remain in shallow reservoirs, consisting of relatively thin sands separated by nearly impermeable shales. A potential recovery method for heavy oil is in-situ combustion. Compared to other methods, in situ combustion involves the added complexity...

... Abstract Oil recovery following in-situ combustion (ISC) is highly dependent on initial oil saturation. The mechanisms leading to this dependence are not well understood due to the complexity of the reaction pathways leading to oil upgrading. We hypothesize that this dependence can be explained...

... of the coke derived from the whole oil. Introduction It has long been recognized that in situ combustion (ISC) might be a potentially effective enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technique, particularly suitable for medium and heavy crude oil-bearing reservoirs, as well as for steam depleted reservoirs. However...
