Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary recovery processes have been successful in recovering as much as sixty percent plus of oil in place, but the industry is still leaving much oil in the ground. Oil remains trapped in tight reservoirs because the oil molecules are simply too large to fit through tight pore throats and flow to the well bore. Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery processes have been around for a long time, but improved methods of identifying and stimulating “friendly” microbes has resulted in some dramatic improvements in oil production rates and reserves.
Dr. Hill will discuss the science behind this technology and how it is being applied to everyday oil field operations. He will offer some examples of the successful application of the process in existing oilfields.
Dr. Colin Hill is a Vice President and Senior Scientist at Titan Oil Recovery, Inc.
Dr. Hill created the testing regimen of oil field reservoir waters for suitability for Titan Oil Recovery Corporation’s proprietary Organic Oil Recovery system and design of appropriate stimulation fluids. Dr. Hill is an internationally known expert in the field of Radiation Biology. He is an Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Immunology at USC Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles. He has been a Visiting Professor at Colorado State University and the University of Wisconsin. He is a consulting scientist for many private corporations and is on the editorial boards on numerous international journals and scientific publications. Dr. Hill holds undergraduate degrees in Applied Biology and Nuclear Research and a PHD in Biochemistry/Radiation Biology from Brunel University, London. He is a Fellow to the Royal Chartered Institute of Biology, London and has received numerous honors and awards in his field.
