SPEI: Enhanced Oil Recovery Fundamentals

REGISTER SOON:  http://www.spe.org/training/courses/ERF.php 


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.

Topics Include:

  • 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
