From screening to deployment, the EOR Alliance can manage your enhanced oil recovery project from end-to-end.
Prior to beginning a project, it is important to consider which solution will be the best fit for your reservoir and individual challenges. All of the latest EOR methods should be considered (Surfactants, SP, ASP, Polymer, Wettability alteration). Learn more
Once an EOR method has been selected, it is important to evaluate the feasibility of the process for a given field and to optimize the solution at lab scale. Parameters such as temperature, salinity distribution, water quality, geological heterogeneities are key uncertainties that need to be carefully investigated from the beginning of any chemical EOR project.

The efficiency of the recovery process resulting from the laboratory needs to be defined for the reservoir itself. A simple extrapolation from core flood data to the reservoir scale (for instance in average fluid saturations calculations) is usually not valid.
The simulation of the flooding processes at lab scale, and their scaling up to the reservoir scale, for pilot and full-field, is an essential part of any chemical EOR project. Learn more
Operational Risk Assessment:
Operational impact of a chemical EOR project must be investigated from the beginning of the feasibility study. The Alliance works to assess the operational risks associated with a Chemical EOR program. Learn more
Surfactant-based chemical EOR requires case-by-case design of surfactant formulations: specific combinations of two or more products in varying concentration ratios are tested, and adapted to the specific reservoir oil, water, temperature, lithology, … Learn more
