Polymer Flood Design in Heavy Oil Fields: Best Practices

May 13, 2020 at 03:00:00 PM · Mountain Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

Technical Stream | In partnership with Energy Now and Empowering Pumps & Equipment

In this webinar you will learn about good and bad practices in designing polymer flooding applications in heavy oil fields and about the most common operational problems. The material is based on many years of experience of laboratory testing and modeling of polymer flooding (Petro Nakutnyy and Gay Renouf, Saskatchewan Research Council) and design and troubleshooting of the field operations (Guy Bolton, Pi-Cubed Process Systems). Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

• An overview of polymer flooding applications in Canada: a data-centric approach

• Why the conventional laboratory workflow may be ill-suited for polymer projects in medium to heavy oil fields and why aspect ratio of coreflood experiments is very important

• Why field performance of polymer flooding project often differs from the data predicted by laboratory and simulation studies

• What are the most common operational issues that affect polymer flooding projects and how to avoid them
