Enhanced oil recovery solutions that overcome production problems

Image generated as part of EOR lab services.

Understanding rock and fluid properties helps engineers and geoscientists develop and update static and dynamic reservoir models and simulate the effects of different EOR scenarios.

Selecting the best EOR development path requires studying the dominating factors that affect oil displacement efficiency in the reservoir, including capillary, gravity, and viscous forces.

A successful EOR program blends an understanding of these forces and the interaction of the injected fluid with the rock and reservoir fluids.

Laboratory testing support

Working together with oratory professionals, our EOR experts ensure that laboratory investigation properly addresses the challenges identified during the preliminary screening and design phase.

We provide technical support during interpretation of preliminary oratory results and help translate these results onto the models used to further evaluate EOR strategies.
