Thermal EOR Evaluation and Design

The following outline represents the workflow for a typical D&M thermal EOR project:

• Feasibility Study

• Field-Pilot Design and Uncertainty Assessment

        • Reservoir characterization studies
        • Evaluation and design of simulation cases to address
          key uncertainties
        • Analysis of different pattern, well geometries and spacing
        • Steam injectivity analysis
        • Sensitivity analysis on steam quality
        • Surveillance and data collection program during pilot operation
        • Uncertainty assessment and cost analysis

• Field-Scale Study
        • Upscale the lab tests and pilot design to field-scale study
        • Uncertainty assessment in field scale application
        • Detailed reservoir characterization and numerical simulation
        • Cost analysis for field-wide application
