Predicting EOR potential - from lab to field

The objective of this project is to develop a set of best practice for simulating production profile for an EOR process. The EOR process will target water based methods to increase Microscopic Sweep by surfactant or low salinity water. The best practice will cover how to apply lab data and prepare field scale simulation models that can predict incremental EOR production profile.

The current status is that an outline scope of work has been prepared and work is ongoing to make this a successfull Force JIP project. The JIP project is planned carried out over a two year period, 2013-2014.

Please read here for a more detaled description of the project.

The project is planned to start up early 2014 and run for two years (completion date Dec 2015).

The project will consist of two phases, with defined milestones for each phase:
Phase 1 : Calendar year 2014
Phase 2 : Calendar year 2015

There will be a workshop at the end of each phase. Milestones and a detailed project schedule will be defined jointly between Force JIP workgroup and R&D institute.

Workshop at Solstrand Hotel 20.-21.05.2014. Minutes and documents can be downloaded here- log in requiered (project members only)
