ONLINE: Enhanced Oil Recovery Fundamentals (RES903)


    This course focuses on fundamentals of miscible, chemical and thermal oil recovery methods.
    Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) projects are usually handled by multidisciplinary teams. This course targets technical staff not involved in detailed engineering design and non-technical staff involved in the legal, financial and decision-making aspects of EOR projects.

    Course Structure: 9 modules of 1½ hours each, delivered over 3 days
    Each day will consist of 3 modules of 1½ hours, incl. a 15 min break.

    Course Level: Foundation
    Duration: 3 days
    Instructor: Leonhard Ganzer
