Learn chemical flooding with gels, foams, alkaline, surfactants and/or polymers and how to simulate this process using CMG’s advanced reservoir simulator STARS. Discuss a variety of topics from laboratory design through simulation to field implementation. Practice numerical simulation technology to enhance the planning of a successful chemical flooding process. Builder and Results will be used to create, modify data, and analyze the results.

After completing the course, you will be able to build a typical chemical flooding dataset using STARS advanced functionality from laboratory matching through field scale simulation.

This course is only available in Bogota. A similar chemical flooding course is available in Calgary and Houston.
