Abstract

A rigorous tie line extension criterion for the minimum miscibility pressure (MMP) is derived for dispersion-free, one-dimensional displacements in four-component systems. The key tie lines required for application of the MMP criterion are obtained by a simple graphical construction. A simplified technique for construction of solutions is demonstrated for the CO2/methane/butane/decane system. The new technique makes solutions of four-component problems not much more difficult than solution of a Buckley-Leverett displacement of oil by water.
