The CO2 Water Alternating Gas (CO2-WAG) injection method, allows the oil to first expand and become better able to flow because of the CO2, and then the water increases the pressure in the reservoir to flush this newly freed oil to production wells. This study is in Sarolangun District, Jambi Province which is pro�spect of CO2 injection tertiary recovery project due to its abundant CO2 reserve. The success of CO2-WAG injection can be determined by investigating ratios between CO2 and water. The goal of this study is to determine optimum CO2-WAG injection ratio in Sumatera Light Oilfield. This study is done through a numerical simulation of immiscible CO2-WAG which is conducted under three scenarios of ratio using both CMG WINPROP and GEM simulator. The CO2/water ratios are varied from 1:1, 2:1 and 1:2. The study results show that the CO2/water 1:2 is the best CO2-WAG injection ratio that gives highest additional oil recovery factor of 35.24%. Additional recovery factor given by CO2/water ratio 2:1 and 1:1 is 1.49% and 19.52% respectively. Based on this study, the effect of CO2-WAG ratio to oil productivity is depending of amount of water injected. Lower initial oil viscosity lead to an insignificant effect of CO2. Proper CO2-WAG injection ratio will give an optimum oil recovery. This works will have a great use in the CO2-Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) application. � 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
