The article presents the results of hydrodynamic modeling of various options for using a surfactant-polymer composition to increase oil recovery in highly permeable pore-type reservoirs containing high-viscosity oil. The substantiation of the use of the hydrodynamic modeling tool is given, a brief description of the research object, the research problem is given. Multivariate calculations of the injection of a surfactant-polymer system with a change in the volume and concentration of the reagent have been carried out. The dependences of the increase in oil production on the volume of reagent injection have been obtained. The change in the type of the dependence on the injection volume is shown.

Key words:

surfactant-polymer flooding, high viscosity oil, high permeability reservoir, porous reservoir, hydrodynamic modeling
