  • 1.  
  • 2. IOR TECHNIQUES Improved Oil Recovery covers Supplemental Recovery , Improved Reservoir Management and Enhanced Recovery (Slide 1) . Slide 1 also illustrates the four typical stages of an (offshore) oil field’s life cycle: (I) primary recovery , (II) plateau production , (III) tail end production and finally (IV) late field rejuvenation . The classical definition of Primary, Secondary and Tertiary recovery (Slide 2) do not cover/describe the actual value activities encountered. Primary Recovery and Improved Oil Recovery is presented as a neo-classical representation of the recovery techniques. This neo-classical approach represents the global technical challenges. Primary recovery is achieved utilising the natural energy stored in the reservoir fluids and underlying aquifer. The primary recovery efficiency is due to one or more of the following mechanisms taking place in the reservoir: solution gas drive; gas cap drive; natural aquifer drive; fluid and rock expansion; and gravity drainage. Supplemental recovery is achieved by using external energy added to the reservoir fluid system to supplement the primary recovery mechanism. No fundamental changes occur to the physicochemical properties of the displacing or displaced fluids. Typically this external energy is provided by water or immiscible gas. Enhanced recovery techniques use external energy added to the reservoir fluid system. However, fundamental changes occur to the physicochemical properties of the displacing or displaced fluids. These physicochemical changes affect the chemical, biochemical, density, miscibility, surface or interfacial tension, and viscosity or thermal nature of the reservoir fluid system.
