Training course overview

The increasing gap between discovering giant oil fields and world oil demand creates very good opportunity for more applications of enhanced oil techniques in mature oil fields.  This training course is designed to provide attendants with solid understanding of different design aspects, types, screening criteria, and field application of current and advanced types of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes.

This dynamic training course teaches an integrated approach of water flooding and enhanced oil recovery (EOR), It explains the connection of each process to the reservoir principles to the results of cases from the field and covers the specifics of chemical, miscible and thermal EOR processes.  The course is designed as an interactive learning environment of lecturing, industry videos, and screening field cases.

What are the goals?

By attending this training course, you should achieve these goals:

  • Describe and apply different EOR processes
  • Reservoir characterization and screening actual fields for EOR methods
  • How to maximize oil recovery using Mobility Ratio and Capillary Number
  • Chemical EOR: polymer, alkaline-polymer, and alkaline/surfactant/polymer
  • Miscible and thermal EOR techniques and new advancements in EOR techniques

Who is this training course for?

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Petroleum, Production & Reservoir Engineers
  • Processing engineers & other discipline engineers
  • Geologists & Petro physicists
  • Engineers who are new to the profession
  • Other individuals who need to know about EOR technologies

Course Outline

Among a range of valuable topics, the following will be given high priority:
  • Different enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods
  • Limitations, challenges, uncertainties and problems of different EOR methods
  • Reservoir concepts, main rock and fluid properties for EOR
  • Advanced reservoir characterization techniques for EOR methods
  • Water flooding: design requirement, frontal displacement theory
