Integrated EOR Development
Successful deployment of chemical EOR generally depends on a few key factors. We utilize a phased approach to screen, verify an oil target, characterize the field sweep efficiency, test the effectiveness of the chemicals, and deploy small field pilots to assess economic viability. Pragmatic approaches utilizing existing low-cost technologies can quickly de-risk a field and identify economically attractive tertiary oil recovery targets.
Chemical Flooding Technologies has developed a phased approach to chemical flooding projects that allows clients to maximise resources and minimize risk. If the results of any phase makes it clear that a project will not be economically viable, the client will have the option to discontinue.
Single Well & Interwell Tracer Testing
Inter Well Tracer Testing (IWTT) is used for waterflood optimization, reservoir characterization, and assessment of sweep efficiency. The IWTT is commonly utilized to evaluate water flow patterns in a variety of formations, including sandstone and carbonate reservoirs, and provides critical information for secondary and tertiary developments.
Our field testing capabilities include interwell tracer tests (IWTT), single well pilot testing and multi-well producing pilots. The IWTT is commonly utilized to evaluate injection water flow patterns in a variety of formations, including sandstone and carbonate reservoirs, and provides critical information for secondary and tertiary developments. The single well pilots utilize Single Well Tracer Tests prior to chemical injection to measure residual oil after waterflood and again following chemical injection to measure residual oil after chemical flood. The difference in residual oil pre and post chemical flood will provide critical information regarding the effectiveness of the chemicals to mobilize trapped oil as well as potential recoverable volumes from a chemical flood.
The goal of a multi-well producing pilot is to mobilize and produce trapped oil, demonstrating the technical and commercial feasibility of a full field chemical flood. A multi-well pilot can provide critical information regarding vertical and areal sweep efficiencies. CFT works with its partners to deliver cost effective solutions for a chemical flood pilot including portable facilities and surveillance.
