Why Choose this Training Course?

The increasing gap between discovering giant oil fields and world oil demand creates very good opportunity for more applications of enhanced oil recovery techniques with objective to produce higher volumes of oil  in mature oil fields and in new discoveries, in the recent years the major operators has envisioned and concluded as a result of experimental and reservoir simulation studies, that as sooner the recovery process is implemented the more efficient the recovery process will be. This dynamic training course teaches an integrated approach of water flooding and enhanced oil recovery (EOR), It explains the connection of each process to the reservoir characteristics and the results of success and failure cases in onshore and offshore fields covering the specifics of chemical, miscible and thermal EOR processes.

The training course is designed to provide attendants with solid understanding of different design aspects, types, screening criteria, and field application of current and advanced types of Enhanced oil Recovery (EOR) processes. This training course presents basics, applications, problems, uncertainties and field development of each EOR method. Reservoir characterization techniques required for EOR will be explained and compared. The EOR methods and applications will be covered with actual field cases worldwide. The course is designed as an interactive learning environment of lecturing, industry videos, and screening field cases.

This AZTech training course will feature:

  • Rock and fluid properties for better reservoir characterization
  • How to screen actual reservoir to select the suitable EOR method
  • Different types, sub-types and results of EOR field cases (chemical, miscible and thermal)
  • Required data, lab design approach and analysis of different EOR methods
  • Current industry simulators and new advancements of EOR methods

What are the Goals?

By the end of this AZTech training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand, describe and apply different EOR processes
  • Reservoir characterization and screening actual fields for EOR methods
  • How to maximize oil recovery using Mobility Ratio and Capillary Number
  • Chemical EOR: polymer, alkaline-polymer and alkaline/surfactant/polymer
  • Miscible and thermal EOR techniques and new advancements in EOR techniques

Who is this Training Course for?
