Reservoir Engineering > Applied EOR Technology - Virtual Instructor Led Training

About this Training Course

Operators worldwide are searching for new ways to produce their existing matured assets. With the current average recovery factor of around 35%, there is still a lot of oil left in reservoirs that are well characterised. This demand to recover more oil from existing assets continues to fuel interest in applying Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques in Asia and across the world.

This course addresses the relevance and basic concepts of various EOR techniques. EOR techniques are often grouped in three main areas: thermal EOR (e.g. steam soak and SAGD), chemical EOR (e.g. low-salinity waterflooding, polymer and surfactant flooding) and Gas EOR (like HC gas and CO2 injection).

The fundamentals of each of these areas will be discussed and through simple exercises, the participants will get an understanding of the relevance of various parameters.

But more importantly, participants will also understand and appreciate the short comings of various techniques and how these could be addressed in a specific field application or via ongoing research activities. Based on the key characteristics of various EOR techniques, the most relevant screening criteria will be explained.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand key EOR techniques
  • Appreciate the strength and weaknesses of each technique and how EOR can be optimised
  • Acquire an understanding of how EOR techniques are applied in field development planning and how to overcome arising complexities

This course will benefit:

  • Petroleum and Reservoir Engineers who are involved in studies to define EOR projects, and who require a better understanding of the technology and a broader view of EOR projects in terms of planning and execution
  • Supervisors and development managers who want a better understanding of current EOR techniques, to be able to discuss these with their experienced staff and make more informed business decisions

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
