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.
- 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
