Oil recovery in an unconfined aquifer was affected by precipitation and a fluctuating water table at the 322.5 K site in Taiwan. An immiscible displacement model was applied to quantify the effect of precipitation on oil recovery. This study also investigated a method to determine the field-average residual oil saturation by simulating the observed cumulative oil recovery with time.
