Enhance Oil Recovery (EOR)

GF Balance Overseas provides a wide range of services and innovative technologies for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), applicable to numerous reservoir conditions, oil types and operating constraints. We are internationally recognized for our CO2 expertise, laboratories and technologies.

Our RD&D aims to minimize your input costs, increase reserves and recovery factors, as well as extend pool production life. Using our strong capabilities in numerical simulation and physical reservoir modelling, we can work with you to determine the appropriate recovery technologies needed for your operations.

The flooding method that has gathered greatest attention is the gas cap drive using CO2 for crude oil which involves the injection of carbon dioxide gas. To help prevent global warming, carbon dioxide produced and recovered on the ground is injected underground reservoir to recover the crude oil. If the method is applied improperly, however, a large volume of carbon dioxide gas might be produced again along with the crude oil. When applying the CO2 drive, a proper planning needs to be prepared after studying the production mode in deep knowledge of the reservoir dynamic behavior, surface facility planning, and the properties of the fluid to be injected as well as the EOR techniques.

Working with the fossil energy industry – conventional oil, heavy oil, oil sands, oil shales and cleaner-coal – we accelerate applying technology to the field to maximize oil recovery and to reduce environmental impact. SRC’s engineers and technologists have extensive experience developing and applying innovative EOR technologies for a wide variety of reservoirs worldwide.

We also has expertise in physical modelling, numerical modelling, determining the conditions and potential for greenhouse gas sequestration, modelling of reaction kinetics for in-situ combustion EOR, petrophysical and fluid property determinations, chemical EOR evaluation and COEOR evaluation. Our enhanced oil recovery (EOR) integrated chemical services are proven solutions for some of the most challenging production conditions. Regardless of the EOR method, we understand your challenges and know the preferred solutions.

We work with you to optimize production and minimize the operational risk associated with EOR. We offer these combinations of optimum services that are right for your system:

• Corrosion-control services for even the harshest production environment

• Organic-deposit remediation and inhibition

• Mineral-scale control even for challenging silicates

• Natural and biogenic hydrogen sulfide (H2S) mitigation and control

• Challenging gas and fluids separation even in alkaline-surfactant-polymer (ASP) floods

Meet the challenges of carbon dioxide flood EOR:

Carbon dioxide (CO2) floods have unique production challenges, such as severe corrosion and deposit formation. These can quickly shut down production and threaten project economics. Overcoming these difficulties requires advanced oilfield products and services from people who understand CO2 flood production.
