EOR, CCS and CO2 Surveillance Using Chemical Tracers for Extending the Producing Life of Existing Wells in California and Around the Globe


Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in mature fields has proven to be an important tool for extending the asset’s life and improving the economics of proven reserves. From testing initial concepts using learnings from pilot studies and early field developments, through late-life evaluations trying and applying different EOR best practices, chemical tracers and their valuable measurements are being used to provide insight and tangible answers for enhancing the performance of aging assets. This presentation will review innovations in chemical tracer technology and show several case studies on how chemical tracers are being utilized to answer questions of remaining oil in place, understanding CO2 injection performance in both gas and WAG floods, polymer applications, huff-n-puff and the effectiveness of conventional water or steam flood projects.The presentation will wrap up with discussions on the use of chemical tracers in CO2 injection projects for CCS and other potential sequestration applications in old fields and other suitable storage reservoirs.
