EOR


Scaled Solutions Ltd has been involved with major operators for many years supporting their efforts to achieve improved oil recovery (IOR) or enhanced oil recovery (EOR) using chemical methods. These include:-
  • Polymer flooding
  • Alkali-surfactant and Alkali-surfactant-polymer flooding (ASPF)
We provide the necessary evaluation to obtain input parameters for reservoir simulators of the EOR process; including:-
  • Chemical/fluids compatibility
  • Rheology (low shear non-Newtonian viscosities)
  • Core resistance factors
  • Chemical adsorption/ desorption
  • Tracer monitoring
  • Oil recovery
  • Dispersion and frontal advancement rates
  • Ion exchange and pH properties of reservoir rocks
  • Injectivity
  • Production issues including scaling tendencies
  • Scale inhibitor evaluation in alkaline fluids production
These projects have covered diverse applications through the Middle East, North Sea and South America..Joint funded projects are being proposed to provide leading technology for the future (ITF www.oil-itf.com ).These projects have covered diverse applications through the Middle East, North Sea and South America.
