"A three-phase, one-dimensional radially layered reservoir simulator is programmed for a large memory digital computer. It is designed to provide a practical solution to the problem of determining optimum soak time during an intermittent steam injection process. The general approach is to (1) develop a representative mathematical model which describes the reservoir; and (2) employ a suitable numerical technique to solve the system of equations which comprises this model. The reservoir consists of concentric cylinders around the wellbore, a pay-zone stratified into thermally connected layers limited on the top and on the bottom by an impermeable cap and base rock, respectively. Mathematically speaking six unknown variables are considered; (pressure, temperature, water saturation, oil saturation, gas saturation and water evaporated (or condensed)) which are subsequently solved by six basic equations. The program was written in FORTRAN IV language and run on an IBM 360-50 digital computer"--Abstract, page ii.
