Gas EOR Fundamentals

Can gas injection increase the oil recovery of your asset? That is a relevant question to ask for every oil reservoir. Whether it is economically feasible or not is a function of many parameters, where this course addresses the key technical aspects to implement gas EOR successfully. This course will give a background in the relevant technical fundamentals of gas EOR methods: miscibility, vaporization and displacement.

If you are working in a team planning to implement gas EOR, or already have started, this course is for you. Typically, reservoir, production, processing and facility engineers.

Course Outline & Topics
The course contains lectures with associated exercises and problem sets. Over the 2 days, the following topics will be covered

  • Gas EOR Methods
  • Recovery Mechanisms
  • Lab Experiments
  • Fluid Only
  • Rock/Fluid Interaction
  • Miscible Displacement
  • Huff-n-Puff
  • Reservoir Simulation of gas EOR
  • Practical Aspects of gas EOR

Other topics can be covered upon request. More or pure focus on unconventional gas EOR is also possible.
