Primer on Enhanced Oil Recovery,
Edition 1
By Vladimir Vishnyakov, Baghir Suleimanov, Ahmad Salmanov and Eldar Zeynalov

Publication Date: 06 Nov 2019

Primer on Enhanced Oil Recovery gives the oil and gas market the introductory information it needs to cover the physical and chemical properties of hydrocarbon reservoir fluids and rock, drilling operations, rock-fluid interactions, recovery methods, and the economy of enhanced oil recovery projects. Beginning with introductory materials on basic physics and oil-rock interaction, the book then progresses into well-known types of EOR, such as gas injection and microbial EOR. Other sections cover hybrid EOR, smart water/low salinity and solar EOR. Worldwide case study examples give engineers the go-to starting point they need to understand the fundamentals of EOR techniques and data.

Key Features

  • Discusses basic physics and chemistry in oil, oil-rock interaction, variation of oil, and interaction properties with temperature
  • Helps readers understand why and when EOR can be used
  • Includes data on EOR implementation and economics
