n. [Enhanced Oil Recovery, Heavy Oil]
The finite-difference or finite-element
reservoir simulation that includes energy equations and calculations used to describe heat conduction, heat and fluid
convection, and latent heat exchanges occurring in the reservoir
rock and fluids during a
thermal recovery process such as steamflooding, steam assisted gravity drainage, or
in-situ combustion. Combustion thermal simulation also requires equations for
modeling combustion reaction kinetics.
