Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage propels Global Enhanced Oil Recovery Market

Published on : Oct 23, 2019

The total amount of oil produced across the globe is evaluated to be only one third of the total oil that is available. Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques are used to increase this amount of oil production by recovering oil from hydrocarbon reservoirs. These techniques are applied in mature and depleted reservoirs to improve efficiency of oil fields in oil production.

Rapid urbanization results in increased energy consumption. Mature and maturing oil fields are actively used for oil production on daily basis. The amount of oil produced is insufficient to suffice the growing energy requirement. EOR technology gains from this situation and increases the oil production. Global Enhanced Oil Recovery market has witnessed growth on the pretext of solving issues related to global energy supply. Sandstone reservoirs are eyed as the potential target for EOR application as the pilot stages of EOR have been tested on similar lithology. EOR approach consists of thermal and chemical methods that are widely practiced whereas gas injection method is comparatively less preferred.

C5+ liquid used in steam injection

Thermal method includes cyclic steam injection, steam assisted gravity drainage and steam flooding. Tests and attempts are being conducted to optimize steam injection process by using different ingredients that include solvents, foams and gases. Liquid Addition to Steam for Enhancing recovery (LASER) process uses C5+ liquid in cyclic steam injection process as steam additive. Steam Assisted Gravity drainage (SAGD) method is applied in unconsolidated reservoirs that contain high vertical permeability. SAGD benefits heavy and extra-heavy oil resources and its application is anticipated to expand depending on the oil prices.

Chemical EOR methods consists of polymer flooding which is known as a mature technology as it has the potential to increase oil production in mature basins. Colloidal Dispersion Gels is polymer based technology under evaluation. Chemical EOR comprises of technologies that differ from technical point of view but have common goal: to improve volumetric sweep efficiency in reservoirs.
