Miscible flooding - PetroWiki


Miscible injection is a proven, economically viable process that significantly increases oil recovery from many different types of reservoirs. Most miscible flooding projects use CO2 or nitrogen as solvents to increase oil recovery, but other injectants are sometimes used. This page provides an overview of the fundamental concepts of miscible displacement. Also provided are links to additional pages about designing a miscible flood, predicting the benefits of miscible injection, and a summary of field applications. Fieldwide projects have been implemented in fields around the world, with most of these projects being onshore North American fields.
