The application of degassed oil instead of recombined oil model for a slim tube technique was investigated. It is found that the use of degassed oil is not recommended for modeling and studying of gas and oil miscibility under typical conditions of Western Siberia deposits. The previously estimated miscibility of light oil and associated gas was confirmed in case of application of recombined oil model or degassed oil at displacement from a slim tube. This occurs because of a gradual transition from the mode of immiscible displacement to the mode of limited-mixing displacement of oil and further to the mode of complete mixing as a result of the mass exchange of light oil and associated gas.
