Full Description
 

Summary

This course teaches an integrated version of the basics of waterflooding and enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The connection of each process to a few fundamental principles is illustrated. The course then reviews the specifics of thermal and solvent methods, relating basic principles to the results of field cases.

Course Outline

  • Defining EOR
  • Reviewing Displacement Fundamentals 
  • Understanding Phase Behavior
  • Defining Polymer Flooding 
  • Exploring Micellar-Polymer Flooding 
  • Using Other Chemical Methods 
  • Analyzing Thermal Flooding 
  • Acquiring Solvent Flooding Basics

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for engineers with at least a BS degree in petroleum or chemical engineering. All other engineers, mathematicians, and physicists with at least a BS degree and some experience in reservoir engineering and/or numerical simulation can benefit from this course.
