CO2-EOR is one of the main methods for tertiary oil recovery. The injection of CO2 does not only improve oil recovery, but also contribute to the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. In this study, near well simulations were performed to determine the optimum differential pressure and evaluate the effect of CO2 injection in oil recovery. By varying the drawdown from 3 bar to 20 bar, the most suitable differential pressure for the simulations was found to be 10 bar. The effect of CO2 injection on oil recovery was simulated by adjusting the relative permeability curves using Corey and STONE II correlations. By decreasing the residual oil saturation from 0.3 to 0.15 due to CO2 injection, the oil recovery factor increased from 0.52 to 0.59 and the water production decreased by 22%.

Keywords: CO2, enhanced oil recovery, relative permeability, near well simulation
