How to Guides and Advice: Environmentally Sustainable Oil Recovery



Oil Recovery Techniques - The need for Enhanced Oil Recovery

24th May 2014 | Enhanced Oil Recovery, EOR, Surfactant

Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) or "Tertiary Oil Recovery", as the name suggests, is the third and final stage implemented in recovering all the crude oil possible from an oil reservoir.

Enhanced Oil Recovery Techniques
Surfactants in the Chemical EOR Process

24th May 2014 | Enhanced Oil Recovery, EOR, Surfactant

Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is well known for its potential to unlock up to 80% of the world's otherwise unrecoverable oil reserves. Surfactant Flooding boosts oil production by lowering interfacial tension, increasing oil mobility thus allowing better displacement of the oil by injected water. Surfactant EOR improves the wetability of porous rocks allowing water to flow through them faster displacing more oil.

Removing Paraffin Wax Build-up from Oil Wells

23rd May 2014 |

As much as 85% of the world's oil is prone to precipitate paraffin deposits which, over time, can reduce oil flow to such a degree that production ceases altogether. Fortunately paraffin wax fouling can be relatively easy to remove.
