In-situ combustion can often recover higher percentages of oil than other enhanced oil recovery technologies. Linde supplies injectant gases and equipment for these fireflooding processes.
The injection of oxygen or oxygen-rich gas mixtures create a flame-front by igniting a fire near the face of injection wells. As that flame burns, it migrates from the reservoir to the production wells. The resulting heat reduces oil viscosity, vaporizes reservoir water and drives oil in front of the fire toward production wells.
