Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Technologies

Overview Library

Separation solutions for tertiary oil and gas recovery

As more operators choose to use EOR methods—such as CO2 injection and polymer flooding—for hydrocarbon production, the treatment and recovery of the injected fluids has become a priority for the industry. 

Our integrated portfolio of EOR technologies incorporates advanced separation solutions that maximize the efficiency of your operations. These technologies and services address numerous challenges, such as those associated with CO2 recovery and polymer preservation without the destruction of hydrocarbons. For example, we provide industry-leading membrane technologies for CO2 separation and an innovative polymer water treatment that removes oil and oily solids down to unprecedented levels.

Contact us today to determine the most suitable technologies for your application and maximize the return on your investment.

CYNARA Acid Gas Removal Membrane Systems

Our membrane separation systems provide permeate streams of more than 95% pure CO2 for EOR injection applications by efficiently separating acid gases from produced natural gas streams that contain 5- to 95-mol% acid gas, without any chemical requirements.

MYCELX RE-GEN Advanced Water Treatment Media

For chemical enhanced oil recovery (CEOR) applications, polymer- and chemical-laden water that has been treated with MYCELX RE-GEN media can be recycled for reuse in the injection field and, in the case of polymer, with no viscosity loss across the system.

MYCELX Polisher Oil-In-Water Polishing Filter

These filters provide fast and permanent removal of oil and grease from produced water—even in the presence of water-soluble polymers used in CEOR—achieving critically low oil-in-water discharge levels (less than 1 ppm) with the industry’s highest flow capacity and smallest footprint.
