    Abstract: Most of the water-drive oil reservoirs in the western South China Sea had stepped in the middle and high water-cut stage. By the influence of reservoir heterogeneity, fault distribution, well pattern deployment and variation of reservoir flow parameters during long-term natural water drive and water flooding, the remaining oil distribution forecast...
