About the Workshop

Summary of the Workshop:
This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to enhanced petroleum recovery processes.

Learning Outcomes:

(1) Develop a screening approach to select and link appropriate EOR processes to particular candidate reservoirs.

(2) Recognize importance of timing of implementation based on reservoir engineering considerations.

(3) Identify key decision/problem issues with regard to feasibility, monitoring and surveillance of EOR processes.

(4) Gain a general understanding of the EOR principles and various process mechanisms and key issues and factors that one must consider in field applications.

(5) Special emphasis on the EOR needs, optimal strategies, challenges and opportunities in India and the possible way forward.

Who Should Attend:
Industry personnel, Policy Maker, Scientist, Faculty, Researcher and Student from oil and gas domain. The course is especially designed for reservoir engineers, production engineers, geoscientists and management personnel who are involved in the screening and planning for EOR/IOR applications in the near future. New recruits should also benefit from this course. As well, it may also interest experienced professionals as a refresher course.

About the Workshop Instructor

Prof. Hemanta Sarma

Dept. of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering

University of Calgary, Canada

Dr. Hemanta Sarma’s research interests are in the areas of enhanced oil recovery, improved oil recovery and reservoir engineering. He is a Professor of Oil and Gas Engineering at the University of Calgary. Formerly, he was the Chairman and Professor of the Petroleum Engineering Department at the Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi, 2009-2014.

He was also a Professor and the inaugural Reg Sprigg Chair in Petroleum Engineering at the University of Adelaide’s Australian School of Petroleum (ASP) during 2002-2009, and later, an Honorary Adjunct Professor (2012-15). He was the founding Director of the Centre for Improved Petroleum Recovery (CIPR) at the ASP and a Research Project Leader (2003-2006) for CO2 sequestration through enhanced petroleum recovery and enhanced coal-bed methane recovery in the CO2CRC, a major Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies. In addition, he was a consultant to a number of Australian petroleum companies in the areas of reservoir engineering and EOR. Currently he serves as the 2020-24 International External Advisor for Petroleum Engineering Programme as an appointee of the University Senate of Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) of Malaysia. Dr. Sarma holds a B.Tech. with Honours in petroleum engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), an M.Sc. in chemical engineering with specialization in reservoir engineering from University of Calgary and a Ph.D. in petroleum engineering from University of Alberta.
