General Section Meeting


October 2022 - General Meeting
The SPE San Joaquin Valley Section Invites you to attend a General Meeting in Bakersfield, California, featuring our guest speaker, Bo Lu from Rockwater.

Topic:                  Value-adding to Mature Field with “Green” Microbial Technology


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 LOE reduction, and protects reservoirs from souring.

Speaker Bio:           
Bo Lu has BS and MS degrees in Geology and earned his PhD in Petroleum Engineering from UT Austin. Bo started his career as a reservoir engineer with BP, rotated between technology functions and asset teams. He joined Noble Energy in 2014 as a Reservoir Engineer Advisor for Africa and GOM Business Units, and later worked in Business Development. Together with other partners, Bo founded UltRecovery Corp in 2017 to help operators implement EOR with proprietary microbial technology. In Aug 2021, UltRecovery was acquired by Rockwater Energy Solutions, a subsidiary company to Select Energy (“WTTR”). Bo joined Rockwater as Sr. Director to lead the EOR technology and services.
