Who should attend?

Audience

    • Managers, reservoir engineers and petroleum engineers involved in EOR projects.

Level

  • Advanced
  • This course provides a thorough understanding of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) mechanisms and their connection to fundamental mechanisms of oil reservoir production and information about decision making in Enhance Oil Recovery projects using screening criteria.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • discuss recovery expectations from reservoirs under primary, secondary and tertiary methods,
  • describe main Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) methods and explain the way they achieve higher recovery factor,
  • discuss the screening criteria used for decision making on EOR projects,
  • plan and apply main EOR methods using empirical, analytical and simulation tools.
