Course Description
This EOR course covers Enhanced Oil Recovery methods used for enhancing oil production from mature reservoirs and provides concepts and limitations of different methods. The main issues which can have significant impacts on success of EOR methods and decisive parameters for selection of EOR techniques for different reservoirs are presented. The course will provide basis for optimized field development planning and investment.

Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) case studies will be described to show practical applications of the methods. New technologies and future prospects for EOR processes are presented.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Fundamentals course.
