Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is largely divided into three major areas:
- Gas injection
- Chemical Injection
- Thermal injection
Although the areas share some similarities (they are injection based), they are mostly different and you as an oil and gas professional must evaluate what type of EOR learning you and your company can benefit from. We have developed the workflow below to help you decide:
Enhanced oil recovery plays an important role in the contribution to world oil supply, and is likely to be more important in future. In uncertain times, supply may not seem so important – but it is! Oil prices have been falling, but demand has kept growing. In fact, the demand for oil and gas is currently higher than any other time in history. On average world’s consumption rate increases by 2% every year.
Churchill once said: “the best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now”. The time for EOR is now, and many industry specialists agree- including the respected Paul L. Bondor (Society of Petroleum Engineers).
EOR is important because of its relatively low risk and potentially high upside. According to SPE, there is an estimated target resource for EOR applications of 6 trillion barrels, of the 9 trillion initially in place [SPE reference], and EOR economics are often attractive.
EOR is also experiencing significant technological development, so it’s important for you as an oil and gas professional to stay updated on the various techniques and experiences. As of today, chemical / polymer flooding has a large unrealized potential, and both hydrocarbon and CO2 miscible flooding have large potential internationally.
There are some significant challenges and complexities that must be overcome, and the key step towards having successful EOR projects is to educate yourself (and your company) and get practical experience. That is exactly the purpose of our EOR courses.
We deliver a multi-perspective learning experience into the world of EOR, where our world-class instructors combine both theoretical and practical learnings in a journey that raises the bar and delivers a solid return on investment.

Your Instructor: Dr. Alexey Andrianov:
Dr. Alexey Andrianov has been working with chemical EOR for more than a decade for industry-leading companies such as Shell, ENI and PDO. His roles include EOR expert, IOR-EOR chief scientist and EOR technical adviser. During his career, Alexey contributed to enhancing oil production on all continents except of Australia. In Oman, he has been working on the second-largest chemical EOR project in the world.
Alexey is among the elite of technical oil and gas professionals and hold large number of publications. Alexey is working on a portfolio of different oil and gas projects, allowing him to bring you the newest technological developments and modern perspective on learning. The course is a bargain from the perspective that you will be able to consult with Dr. Alexey Andrianov.
The course takes 6 weeks to complete and consists of 6 modules. The start date of the course can be found in the top-right price table.
