About the Workshop
Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is an important if not obligatory step in the full life cycle planning and development of mature fields and heavy oil fields, in order to optimize operational economics and improve recovery. This is particularly important in the current economic environment of volatile oil prices and uncertain supply and demand. Additionally, many current Improved Oil Recovery (IOR) projects, particularly waterfloods, have reached their peak in terms of oil recovery, with their economics further diminished by high water cuts. As a result, it is imperative to propose and implement technologies that not only enable maximization of oil recovery, but also mitigate large water production and other operational costs, which can lead to an overall optimization of operational economics.
This event will cover the latest advances in chemical EOR, thermal EOR, miscible gas injection EOR, low salinity water flooding, emerging and innovative technologies, monitoring and surveillance for EOR, EOR screening studies, well design, drilling and completion challenges for EOR applications among others.
Evaluating the applicability of EOR should not be a choice, but a necessary step during the productive stage of a mature field.
