Case Study: Incremental oil with existing infrastructure: Field results of biological EOR

Water flooding is a common secondary production strategy in mature oil fields, but this process typically leaves 60% of the original oil in place unrecovered in many conventional sandstone reservoirs. Biological EOR shows promise for improving oil cuts and reducing decline when used in conjunction with water flooding. Geological analysis together with biological and chemical analyses guided development of a customized nutrient solution for deployment on two onshore fields.
