ABSTRACT

In oil industry, one of the most worldwide used methods a among the hydrodynamic enhanced oil recovery methods is the water flooding, including the cyclic water flooding. The efficiency of cyclic water flooding is affected by a number of geophysical and field technological factors. In this work and based on three-dimensional hydrodynamic simulation, it is shown that anisotropy of formation permeability has significant effect on justification of the half-cycle time and the technological effectiveness of the method.
