Abstract

Analytical solutions are presented that confirm the existence of a combined condensing and vaporizing displacement mechanism in some enriched gas drives. The solutions are derived for dispersion-free, one-dimensional displacements in four-component hydrocarbon systems. A simple geometric construction is used to find a key tie line in the solution, the 'crossover' tie line. This tie line is shown to control the development of miscibility in condensing/vaporizing systems, and it connects the condensing and vaporizing portions of the displacement.
