Two field pilot tests of immiscible water-alternating gas (WAG) injection are being conducted in Chihuido de la Sierra Negra, the largest oilfield in Argentina. Immiscible gas injection technology was selected because of its attractive incremental oil recovery potential for the two main reservoirs in this field. These are mature, waterflooded, unde...

... Motivated by the success of this field application, the second CO 2 immiscible project in United States was conducted in the nearby Lick Creek Field in 1975, where 7.6 Bscf of CO 2 was injected into a reservoir with a net thickness of 8.6 ft and an oil gravity of 17°API. Over the decades, a considerable amount of CO 2 immiscible projects has been undertaken not only in the United States, but also in China [17][18][19][20], Turkey [21][22][23][24], Trinidad [25], Malaysia [26][27][28][29], Hungary [22,30,31], Argentina [32,33], Canada [21,34,35], and Brazil [36,37]. Currently, more projects are being planned in oil fields in Thailand and China (Yanchang oil field [38], Shengli oil field [39]). ...
