Investigation into the Potential Application of Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery on Unconventional Oil: A Field Specific Approach

SH Goodman
A substantial amount of the world’s recoverable oil reserves comprise unconventional resources. However great difficulty has been encountered in recovering oil lower than 22° API. Therefore, advanced methods of Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) such as microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) have been employed to increase the amount of recovered residual oil. MEOR involves the use of bacteria and their metabolic products to alter the oil properties or rock permeability within a reservoir in order to...
