Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery increases oil production and productivity


Published on : Oct 23, 2019

Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) is a technology involved in manipulating structure and function of microbial environment in oil reservoirs with the ultimate aim of increasing economic gain recovering oil from the porous media. It is considered tertiary oil recovery method as it only partially recovers the residual oil. MEOR incorporates knowledge of various disciplines including geology, microbiology, petroleum engineering, chemistry and fluid mechanics.

Traditional enhanced oil recovery processes are presumed to be insufficient and researchers in the associated field have been continuously involved in improving the recovery methods. The enhancement is expected to displace greater amount of accumulated liquid in reservoirs and adding it to the production wells. Hydrocarbon deposits in reservoirs contain residual oil and oil recovery mechanisms such as MEOR aid in extracting this strapped oil.

Chemical EOR was insufficient

Chemical EOR approach has been used in extracting oil in past. It use conventional chemicals that include surface active compounds and solvents, where the former overcome capillary forces by reducing interfacial tension that exists between rock and oil; and latter promotes oil mobility by reducing oil viscosity. Water flooding is used to inject these chemicals in the reservoir and chemical reach all the places where eater displaces oil. Chemical EOR had disadvantages such as failure of chemicals to contact residual oil and insufficient residual oil extraction as chemical tend to take the direction which offers less resistance. This disadvantage propels global Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery market.

MEOR offers several advantages that include increased productivity of oil fields, efficient oil wells operation, less expensive setup, low energy requirement, reduced operations downtime, eco-friendly application, biodegradation of heavy hydrocarbon components and crude oil emulsification.

The metabolic action of microbes produces different components such as gases, bio-surfactants and alcohols that actually interact with crude oil. Biogas supplements reservoir driving pressure whereas bio-surfactants and bio-alcohol reduce oil viscosity and surface tension. Metabolites effect flowing properties of crude oil and mobilizes it towards production wells, thereby increasing oil flow output.
