Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)

 

 

EOR Methods       

 

 

 

EOR Experience

 

CIPG Experts have significant domestic Canada and international experience evaluating enhanced recovery projects, including waterflooding, CO2 injection, miscible flooding, and thermal recovery projects. CIPG builds numerical simulation models that are calibrated to reservoir performance and used to optimize and predict recovery from these types of projects. In some cases, these projects have also involved the creation of detailed static geologic models of the subsurface geology.

The following are a few examples of experience in the evaluation of EOR projects
