This monograph deals with the practical methods and applications of oil recovery using thermal techniques. The reader is expected to have some background in conventional reservoir engineering technology as well as conductive heat transfer and thermodynamics. Emphasis is placed on reservoir engineering aspects and process selection. Exxon has been a strong supporter of the application of numerical methods for predicting thermal recovery behavior and one of the longest chapters in this book covers this subject. The numerical model examples discussed in this chapter highlight Exxon's experience.
