Understanding the changes in the saturation within a reservoir undergoing enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is crucial to optimizing production. We debut a novel, multiphase fluid flow modelling code, TOGA, to assist in modeling gas, oil, and water phases within the reservoir, and combine its output with time-lapse Depth to Surface Resistivity data in a case study involving an EOR reservoir. The results show the potential for combining the two methods to improve our understanding of reservoir saturation over an extended period of time.
