This thesis involves the investigation of the effects of POLYMER FLOODING for the purpose of enhancing oil recovery. Different simulations will be done using Petrel software with synthetic data. The aim is to examine the effects of polymer properties in different reservoir permeabilities in terms of oil recovery. The study focus is to determine results that will be considered as the screening criteria for polymer flooding project. Four cases with different permeability will be created with homogeneous and heterogeneous distribution. Examination of different polymer properties like adsorption, concentration (viscosity) etc., will be done similarly for all cases so as economical evaluation. The grids will be refined, local grid refinement (LGR) and full grid refinement for better approximation of simulation results.
