VISCOUS FINGERING IN FIVE-SPOT IMMISCIBLE DISPLACEMENT
MetadataShow full item record
The work, presented in this paper, is a numerical study that deals with the phenomenon of viscous fingering in a five-point geometry that is considered a good model of oil fields. In order to investigate the effect of the presence of the fractures and their distribution in the porous medium, three different cases are considered in this study. We considered a porous medium fully saturated with oil. Water is injected through an injection well to push this oil to a production well. The interface of the two fluids is visualized as a function of time. The flow equations are solved using the finite volume method (FVM).
