The topics include polymer flooding practice in Daqing, alkaline flooding
, surfactant enhanced oil recovery in carbonate reserves, facility requirements for implementing a chemical enhanced oil recovery project, the use of microorganisms to enhance oil recovery, and the cold production of heavy oil.
Currently, several different technologies are being utilized on the re-completion side including alkaline flooding
and other surfactant chemistry.
