Session 1: UR - Unconventional EOR/IOR & EGR

This session will explore novel research and application of Enhanced Oil and Gas Recovery Techniques in the context of unconventional reservoirs. The new techniques include use of surfactants in fracturing fluid, CO2-EOR in unconventional liquid rich reservoirs and investigation of EOR by injection of N2 and CO2 in tight reservoirs. A comprehensive study on viability of different EOR processes in Bakken and an interesting comparison of oil recovery from conventional versus unconventional reservoirs will be presented. The session will also highlight results obtained from dual permeability matrix-fracture core floods for enhanced recovery from tight oil reservoirs as also an insight into the Huff-n-Puff EOR processes in unconventional oil reservoirs.

Session 2: UR- Reservoir Characterization & Modeling

Despite over a decade of intensive unconventional resource exploitation, many subsurface mysteries remain unsolved. In this session, DFITs, production data, core tests, well tests, and seismic information are incorporated into novel analysis and modelling approaches to reveal new insight on reservoir behavior.
