Paper presented at the International Petroleum Technology Conference, March 26–28, 2013
Paper Number: IPTC-16426-MS
... Abstract Toe-to-Heel-Air-Injection (THAI™) is an in-situ combustion process that is used for the recovery of bitumen and heavy oil. It combines a horizontal production well with a vertical air injection well placed at the toe. The drainage mechanism of THAI is similar to SAGD of the vertical...

... to the onerous computer requirements. Instead, grid coarsening procedures were used. Simulation solutions were obtained for a homogeneous reservoir section of the THAI® field pilot, near Conklin, Alberta, Canada. The reservoir model did not include an interbedded shale layer, or bottom water layer, and the study...
