D16 AIR INJECTION INTO LIGHT OIL RESERVOIRS – OXIDATION KINETICS AND SIMULATION AUTHOR(S) Abstract 1 M. GREAVES A. H. BENTAHER AND R. R. RATHBONE Address Improved Oil Recovery Group Department of Chemical Engineering University of Bath Bath BA2 7AY England Air injection into deep light oil reservoirs which have previously been water flooded is a very promising IOR technology. The process of air injection is considered a cheaper injectant gas alternative to using hydrocarbon gas carbon dioxide or nitrogen because it is freely available. The process can also be made sustainable and clean if the produced carbon dioxide is reinjected
