Screening and Field Piloting for EOR Project Development
This two-day course will emphasize critical considerations during enhanced oil recovery (EOR) screening and pilot design. Topics include:
- Conceptualizing EOR schemes (gas injection, thermal recovery, and chemical flooding)
- Risks and risk mitigation in EOR
- Screening of reservoirs for gas, thermal, and chemical EOR
- Conceptual design and evaluation of EOR pilots
- Reservoir surveillance and monitoring
- EOR project implementation
The objectives are to introduce various considerations during EOR screening and pilot design:
- Steps involved in EOR project development
- Screening of prospects for different EOR processes
- Field tests and laboratory investigations for developing an EOR project
- Development of EOR field pilots and interpretation
- Monitoring and surveillance
Appropriate case studies and exercises will be used to illustrate various concepts. Attendees are encouraged to bring relevant EOR related problems for use as in-class exercises.
Why You Should Attend
This course will provide participants the opportunity to review and learn the most up-to-date information available about EOR technologies and strategies practiced today.
Who Should Attend
Engineers, geologists, managers, and planning personnel involved in EOR project development. This is an intermediate level course. Prior exposure to EOR would be highly desirable.
