Gas Treatment & Injection training

This course will develop your understanding of the fundamentals of miscible gas injection enhanced oil recovery, the applications of scientific principles to reservoir fluid phase behaviour and multiphase fluid flow in porous media. It provides you with mathematical tools to help in the design and selection of gas injection EOR projects.

By the end of the course you will feel confident to:

  • Understand the thermodynamics of miscible gas injection in EOR
  • Determine and apply principles of phase and volumetric behaviour of reservoir fluids
  • Understand reservoir fluid trapping and mobilisation mechanisms

This training course uses both conventional and non-traditional techniques. It utilises small group and facilitated plenary discussions as well as instruction to explore key concepts, models, tools and techniques. Hands-on exercises and case studies are used to practice the application of knowledge and use of skills. Structured reviews provide the opportunity to consider how the learning can be applied to the delegates’ own work.
