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
