Chemical EOR

Online Live Streaming Course

5 sessions ( approx. 4 hours each) , May 13 to 17, 2024

Duration : 20 hours

The course will provide the student a high-level technical insight in the various EOR methods involved in Chemical Flooding and Gas Injection. Chemical Flooding will consider Low Salinity Flooding, Polymer Flooding and Surfactant Flooding. Gas Injection will discuss immiscible and miscible gasses and pay special attention to the use of CO2. Operational and facility aspects will be touched upon. Field cases will illustrate the various techniques. Using screening conditions, the application in a specific field can be quickly checked.
