BP to discuss North Sea EOR programme at SPE Aberdeen

Euan Duncan, Discipline Lead Reservoir Engineer at BP, will address SPE Aberdeen’s members and the wider public on 23 April, at a presentation covering how EOR works and the opportunities this technology presents when conditions are right.

Duncan will discuss the BP North Sea EOR programme and lessons learned from water-alternating gas projects in the Miller, Ula and Magnus fields. He will also give an update on current projects, including the Clair Ridge EOR scheme using LoSal® EOR and polymer applications in the Schiehallion field, highlighting how these are being taken from the research stage to operational projects.

Duncan said: “Applying new technology, such as EOR techniques, is challenging. This can be due to issues such as project complexity, lack of confidence in the technology or the length of time taken until results are seen.

“BP is concentrating on learning from previous experiences to create the next phase of EOR, defining the enablers and the major barriers. In a mature basin this is not easy and so I hope to encourage an open discussion following my presentation, to hear how others are approaching this problem.

Anthony Onukwu, Chairman of SPE Aberdeen, added: “As global demand for energy continues to increase, maximising production from existing oil fields is high on the agenda. Enhanced oil recovery can increase production from a well up to 75% and it is therefore important that the upstream oil & gas industry works together to overcome the barriers surrounding EOR techniques.”

The technical meeting, followed by a networking dinner, will take place from 6.30 to 8.30pm on 23 April at the Douglas Hotel, Aberdeen.
