This course focuses on chemical enhanced oil recovery methods.
Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) projects are usually handled by multidisciplinary teams. This course targets petroleum engineers or geoscientists that aim to gain insights into the aspects of mobilizing and displacing oil from hydrocarbon reservoirs by using chemical compounds added to the injected fluids. Various chemicals are discussed (polymers, surfactants, etc.), their displacement contributions explained and their application in complex combinations outlined. Field case histories and screening factors are also discussed.
