This course teaches an integrated version of the basics of waterflooding and enhanced oil recovery (EOR), illustrating the connection of each process to a few fundamental principles. It reviews the specifics of thermal and solvent EOR by relating basic principles to the results of cases from the field.
- Definitions of EOR and polymer flooding
- Fundamentals of displacement
- Phase behavior, micellar-polymer flooding, and chemical methods
- Thermal flooding and the basics of solvent flooding
Why You Should Attend
Every oilfield eventually relies on some form of enhanced oil recovery. Some require it from the start. This information can be crucial for continued productivity.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for engineers with at least a bachelor’s degree in petroleum or chemical engineering. All other engineers, mathematicians, and physicists with at least a bachelor’s degree and some experience in reservoir engineering or numerical simulation can benefit from this course.
