Field Support Overview
Tracer Test Design and Implementation
Ultimate EOR staff have experience assisting in field scale tracer test implementation. The presence of skilled staff on site during the injection and sampling phases of tracer tests helps ensure appropriate chemicals are injected in every phase and the sample collection procedure is adequate. The staff can assist in all tracer tests, including single well EOR pilots and partitioning inter-well tracer tests.
Chemical EOR Facilities Assessment
UEORS chemists and engineers are experts in EOR formulation mixing and quality control. They can independently evaluate a planned or existing facility for suitability in chemical hydration, mixing, storage and injection. Whenever possible UEORS will make client-friendly recommendations which leverage existing infrastructure.
Proper procurement of large volumes of chemicals at low cost is essential in chemical EOR implementation. UEORS has relationships with most major suppliers of surfactants, polymers and other chemicals used in EOR formulations, and will help clients through the process of chemical evaluation and awarding of bids. UEORS also can assist clients with the supply-chain side of chemical procurement.
Produced Fluids Handling
Management of produced water and emulsions is an important design consideration in chemical EOR flooding. UEORS has expertise in emulsion breaking and fluid handling, and has competent industry contacts who specialize in these areas. Successful management of produced fluids will help an EOR project maintain long-term profitability.
Chemicial Quality Control and Onsite Laboratory
UEORS has the capability to evaluate injected chemicals for quality before and during chemical injection. Quality assurance is critical in executing and analyzing a successful EOR flood, and UEORS’ onsite laboratory provides cutting-edge facilities to evaluate all relevant fluid properties before they are injected.
