... 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...
