Course Duration: 4 days | Time: 9am to 1pm | Course Locations: VILT, Lagos, Houston, San Diego
This class is intended for general audiences who want to be exposed to the various waterflood and EOR options without going into in depth technical details. Waterflood and key EOR processes such as gas/WAG, chemical and thermal will be discussed. Key risk and uncertainties often associated with waterflood and EOR projects will be discussed and de-risking strategies will be discussed. Several case studies will be presented. Videos will be played to compliments the lectures. Participants are encouraged to give a 15 minutes presentation of own challenges and blockers to increase production and reserve.
