EOR – Polymer Injection

The different mechanisms for the recovery of hydrocarbons from reservoirs has usually been divided into three types: primary, secondary and tertiary recovery mechanisms. Although this nomenclature suggests a chronological order among these stages, their application is subject to the specific characteristics of the reservoir and to the field production strategy. However, primary recovery is generally..

Production curves visualization just got easier

Reservoir Engineers analyze production curves quite frequently as part of the daily tasks. This ranges from the definition of a recovery strategy for an exploratory field to the surveillance of a reservoir with years of production. These curves may come from either a reservoir simulation or field measurements and  their analysis can provide invaluable reservoir knowledge. In..
