Investigate, evaluate, and understand global EOR techniques and how they effect performance

Why Use DAKS™ to Assess EOR Opportunities?

Selection of optimal EOR methods requires an understanding of reservoir fundamentals, fluid properties and how oil displacement methods will improve mobility within the reservoir. Analogue benchmarking using DAKS™ is an ideal way to:

  • Investigate critical factors in choosing optimal EOR methods
  • Develop insight from best performing analogous reservoirs

  • Reality check decisions in optimal EOR application

  • Evaluate potential candidates for full or partial application based on proven EOR case studies

DAKS™ EOR Module

The DAKS Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Module was designed to provide detailed analysis and systematic documentation of >300 global case studies with a focus on EOR methods that have proven to be effective in improving the field’s production performance. The EOR Module documents key facts, lessons learned and best practices from global EOR deployment since the 1960s. Emphasis is placed on understanding the key EOR value drivers within the context of the production history of an EOR project.

Benefits of the DAKS™ EOR Module

  • Screen and identify suitable EOR methods using key intrinsic parameters

  • Test key EOR success factors based on best practices and lessons learned from relevant analogues

  • Validate viable EOR methods for specific proprietary reservoir and fluid properties.

  • Calibrate potential incremental recovery for individual EOR methods

  • Benchmark against global analogues to identify issues and value creation opportunities

EOR Case Study

Using DAKS™ to Evaluate EOR Potential for a Clastic Heavy Oil Reservoir

This EOR case study demonstrates how The Digital Analogue Knowledge System (DAKS™) can be used to evaluate EOR potential for a clastic heavy oil reservoir and validate viable EOR methods. In this scenario the operator is currently evaluating options for enhanced oil recovery and wants to understand best practices from global analogues, specifically in the following areas: Effectiveness of thermal vs chemical flood, incremental recovery and ultimate recovery factor, and production/injection performance.
