New finite element procedures based on the streamline‐upwind/Petrov‐Galerkin formulations are developed for time‐dependent convection‐diffusion‐reaction equations. These procedures minimize spurious oscillations for convection‐dominated and reaction‐dominated problems. The results obtained for representative numerical examples are accurate with minimal oscillations. As a special application problem, the single‐well chemical tracer test (a procedure for measuring oil remaining in a depleted field) is simulated numerically. The results show the importance of temperature effects on the interpreted value of residual oil saturation from such tests.
