Low salinity water flooding (LSW) is considered as the major proposed EOR technique in which the salinity percentage of the injected water is adjusted in order to improve oil displacement efficiency; that is to say LSWI is considerably influenced by the oil recovery factor regarding altering the wettability condition. The amount of Total Field Oil production (FOPT), Total Field Gas production (FGPT), Field Pressure Ratio (FPR) and Field Gas-Oil Ratio (FGOR) were simulated for 7400 days while taking into consideration four parameters including NTG, porosity, rock compressibility and permeability in Z direction. As a result, rock compressibility and permeability in Z direction have less impact on the amount of FOPT, FGPT, FPR and FGOR. Moreover, NTG and Porosity have significantly affected each of the aforementioned factors.
