English term or phrase: miscible drive
Definition from Petex and the University of Texas Austin:
A method of enhanced recovery in which various hydrocarbon solvents or gases (such as propane, LPG, natural gas, carbon dioxide, or a mixture thereof) are injected into the reservoir to reduce interfacial forces between oil and water in the pore channels and thus displace oil from the reservoir rock. See chemical flooding, gas injection.

Example sentence(s):
  • The Fairway oil field in Anderson and Henderson Counties, often described as a model example of present day oil and gas conservation in Texas, is well underway with a secondary recovery system by miscible drive techniques. Energy Citations Database - USA
  • Predictions of reservoir response to the application of gas or solvent are necessary before starting a miscible drive project. digital-earth
  • The five miscible drive fluids are hydrocarbon, solvents, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, enriched hydrocarbon gas and high-pressure hydrocarbon gas. Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute
