    Abstract

    Using high pressure glass micromodels, a series of water alternating gas (WAG) cycles were conducted using equilibrated fluids, with high quality images of the oil recovery processes operating during alternate WAG cycles being recorded. The tests were carried out using both water-wet and oil-wet micromodels. Overall, results highlight the importance of corner filament flow of water in the recovery process.
