The North Sea is at a production stage where the potential benefit from EOR may be lost, if understanding and implementation plans are not advanced, and as infrastructure, field installations and reservoir potential reduces.
Along with Heriot-Watt University, Computer Modelling Group Ltd (CMG) and Nalco Champion, we invite you to attend our one day symposium, devoted to chemical enhanced oil recovery (EOR).
The symposium will focus on the processes considered most likely to succeed in UKCS producing fields, specifically low salinity waterflooding and polymer injection, and provide an overview of current base recovery factor assessment and the IOR methods likely to improve reservoir efficiency and field optimisation.
The principle objective of this symposium is to promote knowledge-sharing and help advance understanding of chemical EOR amongst the small to medium sized operating oil companies.
In this one day event, participants will gain a clearer view of the requirements and possible workflows to appraise chemical EOR feasibility for their field.
The day will be technically focused: clearly defining screening, the laboratory, simulation and field requirements for low salinity and polymer implementation in an offshore operating environment of the UKCS.
