“Easy oil” is gone! The recovery challenge grows as the industry moves towards producing from increasingly more difficult reservoirs. Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) has reached new levels of technology. And improved oil recovery (IOR) has made significant advances. Yet, current recovery processes and their applications still have serious technical, resource, and commercial hurdles. Surmounting these hurdles and pushing recovery to higher levels requires a new mindset – innovative solutions now and into the future.
SPE will conduct a forum 18-23 October 2015 in Cancun, Mexico to discuss methods to accelerate new technologies deployment, explore smart integration of disciplines and professions, and examine ways to make EOR standard in the field development cycle. All with a view to developing a new culture focusing on recovery from the beginning.
Forum participants from all corners of the oil industry, government, and academia will address such challenges as:
- Reservoir characterization issues
- Emerging technologies & new developments
- Improving research-to-field cycle of EOR projects
- Modeling phase behavior
- Non-conventional reservoir development
- Successful EOR implementation
- Effective monitoring and control
Application deadline is Friday, 31 July! For full details: SPE Enhanced Oil Recovery – The Future is Now!
