SPE Workshop: Improved Decision-Making Through Tracer Technology 14 - 15 Mar 2018 Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Abu Dhabi, UAE


Wednesday, March 14

14:30 - 16:10
Session 3: Tracers for EOR
Session Chairpersons Chris Bouma, Chemical Tracers; Kerry Spilker, Chevron

Tracers are an essential component for successful EOR implementation. Tracers can be used in all stages of the EOR process from conception, pilots, and field implementation to improve decision making and ultimately reduce the risk associated with EOR. Tracers can identify EOR target oil, quantify EOR effectiveness, and identify flow paths. Tracer data should be used to balance flow fields and update simulation models, ultimately improving upon the ability of the producer to successfully advance their EOR projects. This session will touch upon tracer technologies applied to EOR and the insight that may be gained from tracer technology implementation in EOR projects.
