In situ combustion model development and its applications for laboratory studies

A one-dimensional in situ combustion model was developed for oil and gas production calculations using a frontal-advance theory combined with mass and energy balance equations and simplified by boundary conditions, limitations and assumptions. The model is run for data from laboratory combustion tube experiments. Model runs for such experiments show that the results are in good agreement with the experimental values for the dry combustion mode, but not for the wet combustion mode where the water injection is high.
