Abstract

Invited Paper Mechanisms of shock generation in variable bubble point systems I. Herrera", R. Camacho\ A. Galindcf "Institute de Geofisica, National University of Mezzco fC/TVAMj, Apdo PoaW ^-(5^, Mezzco D.F., Mexico *>PEMEX and UN AM, Mexico City, Mexico ^Institute Mexicano del Petroleo and UN AM, Mexico City, Mexico ABSTRACT In a sequence of papers the authors have investigated shock modeling in miscibie displacement, specially in connection with variable babble-point problems in Petroleum Engineering. The conclusions in connection with the mechanisms of shock generation are summarized here. The main conclusion is that there is a clear difference between the mechanisms of shock generation in miscibie and immiscible displacements. In particular, Due ley-Leverett Theory which has been the main tool to understand shocks in immiscible displacement, is not applicable to shocks in miscibie displacement
