B020 EFFECTS OF GEOSTATISTICAL HETEROGENEITY ON LATERAL FLOW BEHAVIOR E. SERPEN 1 * E. LAINE 2 AND C.A. EHLIG-ECONOMIDES 1 SUMMARY 1 Most oil reservoirs begin secondary production after primary production. In contract πproduction starts with waterflood. The π-production strategy accelerates oil recovery by quickly bringing the reservoir to peak production and by keeping the oil production rate constant until oil recovery reaches at least 50% of the initial oil in place. If water breaks through before 50% recovery then the water-injection rate is increased enough to maintain the constant oil rate. This study investigates the effect of geostatistically-simulated heterogeneous
