  • Once an EOR method has been selected in a screening process, it is important to evaluate the feasibility of the process for a given field and to optimize the solution at lab scale. Parameters such as temperature, salinity distribution, water quality, geological heterogeneities are key uncertainties that need to be carefully investigate from the beginning of any chemical EOR project in order to ensure the robustness of the chemical EOR process ultimately at pilot and full-field scales.

    Our methodology consists in a step-by-step approach where, starting from thousands of possible formulations, it progressively delivers the best solution in terms of EOR process efficiency and robustness.

    Step 1: Analysis of reservoir materials (rocks/fluids)

    Step 2: Extensive formulation screening

    Step 3: Coreflood experiments at reservoir conditions

  • Prior to beginning a project, it is important to consider which solution will be the best fit for your reservoir and individual challenges. All of the latest Chemical EOR methods should be considered (Surfactants, SP, ASP, Polymer, Wettability alteration, Viscosifying Surfactants).

    A detailed review of the field properties and production characteristics including geological, petrophysical, production, simulation, etc. that will result in a ranking of the best or more promising EOR technologies for specific conditions of the field.

  • Operational impact of a chemical EOR project must be investigated from the beginning of the feasibility study. The Alliance works to assess the operational risks associated with a Chemical EOR program, including:

    • Checking the compatibility of the optimized EOR formulation with the recommended production chemicals;
    • Assessing the primary risk of emulsion formation by performing bottle testing and visual observations of various emulsion breakers and water clarification chemistries;
    • Determining scaling potential on the production side particularly in systems with heat exchangers or heater, treaters;
    • Evaluating microbiological activity, determining impact of biocides on formulation/polymer viscosity;
    • Determining foaming tendency and the impact of defoamers on polymer viscosity.
    • In addition, especially for offshore applications, testing the topside facilities at semi-industrial scale before implementation is critical for the viability of the project.
