Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)
Effectively evaluate and optimize any EOR process to maximize production output, lifecycle, and recovery of an asset to unlock its true value.
Our EOR solution incorporates the industry-standard physics engines for modelling complex processes together with machine learning optimization software to get you the insights you need to make optimal decisions.
Now you’re able to reduce risk when considering potential returns on investment by simultaneously accounting for the impacts on your production outputs relative to the costs to implement.
Make Informed Capital Investments
EOR processes require significant capital investment and require critical due diligence and consideration. Simulation provides clarity and allows you to understand the impacts – both on recovery and associated capital requirements – without the risks associated with field implementation while providing confidence in the resulting outcomes.
Account for the Complexities
As EOR is complex, the physics associated with a given process becomes increasingly complicated, and if not properly considered may lead to misguided conclusions.
Physics-based modelling and simulation delivers unparalleled accuracy to give you the information you need to make operational decisions while accounting for the underlying uncertainties of subsurface operations.
Flexibility for Any Process
No matter the process being considered, our robust physics engines and guided workflows allow for rapid investigation of even the most complex EOR evaluation. Some commonly considered processes include:
The WAG development strategy has succeeded in achieving a high recovery, however, the gas production limits require better management of the high Gas-Oil-Ratio (GOR) during the later stages of the project. With the success of this foam feasibility study, the next steps will involve additional simulation studies on foam application, and a pilot test to understand and confirm the effectiveness of the foam injection.
