Abstract

There is growing interest in the application of air injection in deep light oil reservoirs, especiaily in remote locations and offshore. Air represents a cheap source of injection gas, and with low temperature oxidation (LTO) the oxygen is generating an in situ source of N2 or `flue gas' to carry out immiscible or miscible displacement processes. If the oil and reservoir matrix are sufficientiy reactive, high temperature oxidation (HTO) can be implemented to sustain fully-propagating in situ combustion, with excellent improved oil recovery (IOR).
