Full Description

This 2-day course is a review of the fundamental principles of displacement and phase behavior needed to understand chemical EOR methods. It provides an overview of four major types of chemical EOR, specific chemicals in each category, conditions under which they work, and special problems encountered with each.

You will gain a better understanding of why EOR is used, greater awareness of the classifications of EOR methods, increased ability to judge which chemical EOR method is appropriate for a given reservoir, and increased knowledge of how each chemical EOR method works. Topics include:

  • Displacement fundamentals
  • Polymer flooding
  • Conformance improvement methods
  • Surfactant/polymer flooding
  • Surfactant/polymer optimization
  • Alkaline/surfactant/polymer flooding
  • Chemical flooding of carbonate reservoirs
  • Commercial simulators for CEOR

Why You Should Attend

You will broaden your understanding of enhanced oil recovery techniques. If you’re new to EOR, you will get a solid foundation on which to build.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for early-career petroleum, reservoir, production and facilities engineers, as well as managers, government officials, and others who want to learn more about enhanced oil recovery.
