Block Z, one of reservoir of Shengli Oil Field, is a sensitive heavy oil reservoir with high content of kaolinite and illite. From 1992 to
2002, more than ten-years water drive and steam huff and puff has seen poor production performance. In 2003, in-situ combustion pilot
test with 1 injector and 11 producers was carried out to improve development performance and, simultaneously physical simulation is
designed to evaluate the pilot test. The paper will detail the physical experiments of in-situ combustion, its experiment apparatus, its
process, and its results. Also, it will briefl y introduce production history and performance of pilot test.
