Title: Experimental and statistical study of residual oil saturation after gas, water, and steam drive, and fuel availability for the in-situ combustion process

Abstract

A step-wise multiple regression analysis, assuming a logarithmic relationship existed between the variables, was performed on the experimental results and on data provided by other investigators. It was concluded that (1) residual oil saturation after steam drive is strongly related to the oil saturation just prior to commencement of the heating process; (2) in water drive, hydrodynamic phenomena are more important than rock characteristics; (3) fuel availablity in the in situ combustion process is related to the surface area of the porous medium; (4) experimental results of this investigation indicate that thermal and kinetic effects did not significantly affect residual oil saturation after steam drive and fuel availability for the in situ combustion from the mass of the remaining oil at 400$F can be made by using the delayed coking factor
