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 techniques in mature oil fields. 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 principles to the results of cases from the field and covers 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. Today, it is better to apply EOR in a secondary mode. 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. Detailed EOR methods will be covered with many actual field cases worldwide will be presented and discussed. 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:

  • 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?

This AZTech training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Petroleum, Production & Reservoir Engineers
  • Processing engineers & other discipline engineers
  • Geologists & Petro physicists
  • Engineers who are new to the profession
  • Other individuals who need to know about EOR technologies

 

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The course is designed as a blended environment of presentation, class exercises, field application/analysis and several industry videos showing all processes.
