As Africa moves forward with their mining development initiatives, global investors are starting to realize the vast potential of this untapped market to greater heights. The resource rich African market are continuously welcoming investors that is keen to unlock and understand the investments and environmental concerns of many African countries.
The Africa Mining Investment & Development Summit 2013 will be held in Accra, Ghana on 9th to 11th July 2013. We will provide insights from various stakeholders, have extensive understanding of the mining and investment potential of Africa, and resolve challenges and barriers that will be encountered along the way. We aim to provide a platform to learn from Africa mining industry’s pioneers and new entrants.
Together with Neoedge’s line of premier conferences, we aim to bring mining industry’s best speakers and delegates. Network with not only the mining and mineral exploration companies but expect to meet regulators, engineering support companies, upstream and downstream mining sector infrastructure development organizations, financial institutions, advisory and consultancy firms.
Make the move towards the next big thing in Africa.
The following key themes will be addressed in depth with Real Examples and Case Studies:
African Market Overview
  • The African Mining Road Map: What has been done and what will be done
  • 3 E’s for policy and regulatory challenges: Explaining, Enhancing and Enforcing
  • Resource nationalism and local content for long term benefits
  • Understanding current legal system and managing through uncertainties
  • Managing taxation complexity and trade barriers
Mining Industry Developments
  • Developing infrastructure and transportation for viable business and society rehabilitation
  • Labour relations and human capital progress in Africa
  • Geological database for ease access to information and enhance productivity
  • Automating mine operations for lesser downtime and better production gains

In-House Training

At Neoedge, we customise the Agenda and tailor the topics according to your requirements.


Our programs are based on a modular structure which can be swapped out and replaced with others which are suitable for the clients’ needs. Alternatively, we can conceptualize “core” topics or subjects and work with the stakeholders to further refine the syllabus.
Our program are also fitted to our clients’ schedule so that they will never have to worry about spending time during their peak periods for continuous professional development.
Clients always dictate when our program are to be held and not the other way round.


We assign a corporate learning specialist and the facilitator who will connect to the various stakeholders on finding out their specific learning objectives before the programme’s commencement.
This is to ensure that we deliver what the client wants rather than what is “off-the-shelf”. This continues even after the program ends to ensure that the objectives are met and to evaluate if there is a need for continued education.


On top of the above, clients get to enjoy substantial savings for in-house solutions without suffering a drop in the quality of the deliverables.

Event Announcement: Screening & Selecting EOR & Applied Chemical Flooding

04 - 08 MARCH 2013

Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes have been applied successfully worldwide. The goal of this course is to provide attendants with solid basics of different aspects, types, and application of the three main types of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes. The three types of oil recovered are identified to include primary, secondary, and enhanced oil recovery. When the reservoir pressure is depleted after primary and secondary processes, enhanced oil recovery will be introduced targeting the residual oil saturation of this field. This course introduces different types of enhanced oil recovery processes including thermal, miscible, and chemical methods. Basics, mechanisms, applications, and screening criteria for each method will be presented. Pilot design will be covered. Many actual field examples will be presented and discussed plus theoretical/practical aspects of these methods. 

Topics covered:
  • Introduction to enhanced oil recovery (EOR)
  • Main rock and fluid properties for EOR
  • Screening criteria of different EOR methods
  • Displacement fundamentals; residual oil, mobility ratio, sweep efficiency.
  • Classification of chemical EOR methods; polymer, surfactant-polymer, and alkaline-surfactant-polymer (ASP) processes.
  • Polymer flooding and applications; Polymer types and pilot design.
  • Thermal processes; cyclic and continuous steam injection, and in-situ combustion.
  • Steam flow rate and quality measurements; prediction of steam flood performance;
  • Classification of miscible methods and fundamentals
  • Determination of minimum miscibility pressure (MMP)
  • Carbon dioxide miscible and immiscible flooding processes
  • Other EOR Processes; Microbial EOR (MEOR) and Electric EOR (EEOR) processes
  • Screening criteria for actual field case
  • Solved examples, field implementation and application

BYO Session
Bring Your Own Data for Analysis
It allows participants to bring their own field/reservoir data and work on them for screening EOR suitability and applicability together with the trainer and other participants.

By the end of this course, you will learn:
  •     How to screen actual reservoir to select the suitable EOR method
  •     Different types and sub-types of EOR processes
  •     Design pilot test for actual selected apartment of a reservoir
  •     Required data for analysis chemical, thermal and miscible methods
  •     How to design a simulation study for EOR methods
  •     New advancements and research outcomes of EOR methods
