Reservations REQUESTED - Please make your reservation with Ted Frankiewicz ASAP using his email


Waterflooding is a widely used approach to get more recovery from conventional reservoirs. However, the geological heterogeneity of a reservoir challenges waterflooding efficiency. This talk will discuss a microbial technology which utilizes indigenous bacteria to plug preferred water channels and improves the conformance control of waterflooding. In additional to EOR benefits, it reduces water production, thus reducing Lease Operating Expenses, and protects reservoirs from souring.
