1. n. [Enhanced Oil Recovery]

A type of reservoir-drive mechanism in which the energy for the transport and production of reservoir fluids is provided by the gas dissolved in the liquid. As reservoir fluids enter the wellbore, changing pressure conditions cause the gas to break from solution to create a commingled flow of gas and liquid that aids production.
