An overview of existing models for the steam injection mobility (SIM) in simulating thermal oil recovery processes is presented. On the basis of the analysis of their accuracy, we give recommendations on the application of these models for accurate reservoir numerical modelling. We have established that SIM models with more restricted steam injection from wellbore to reservoir may lead to underestimation of the oil recovery figures.
