The physics governing the effectiveness of various recovery methods: polymer flooding, microbial enhanced oil recovery, deep diversion technology (gels of different kinds), surfactant flooding, low salinity water flooding, gas injection, water-alternating-gas (WAG) and Foam-Assisted-WAG; is illustrated in relation to experiments and simple modeling. The methods (mechanism) and applicable conditions (simple screening criteria) are presented together with field examples if available; the course covers a staged approach to understand the potential of Advanced Recovery methods in various situations. The methodology is also illustrated with the application to different reservoir situations. The uncertainty of predictions and the economic benefit of various schemes are also discussed.
This is a three-day classroom-based course with worked examples, case studies, exercises and discussion. The course includes micro-scale examples to see practical illustrations of the important physical processes. Participants will have the opportunity to bring their own reservoir data to discuss the potential of alternative strategies.
The course is designed for mid to senior level engineers, production geoscientists and subsurface managers.
A desire to understand the basic physics of Advanced Recovery, including the treatment of economics and uncertainty is required. Familiarity with some reservoir engineering concepts and terminology is assumed.
Participants will learn to:
Participants will also have gained a fundamental understanding of the physical processes of fluid-flow that underpins the approach.
