    Abstract

    The effects of different modeling approaches and various scales of geological heterogeneity on waterflood recovery and volumetrics of an incised valley reservoir are analyzed. Seismic, well-log, and core data are integrated with an incised valley facies model to create sections and used to perform two-phase 2-D fluid-flow simulations. Results from this study will be used in a future full-field three-dimensional waterflood simulation of the Countess YY pool.
