Carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery is utilised to prolong the life and productivity of existing oil fields. For effective implementation, the correct conditions must be established for developing miscibility between oil and gas. The traditional measurement methods are time consuming and subjective. There is significant potential for microfluidic solutions in this field. The scope of this thesis has been to develop a proof of concept platform to interrogate the onset of multiple contact miscibility for an analogue ternary fluid system within a microfluidic system whilst understand the pore-scale process during miscibility development.
