Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) stands out within the oil extraction processes for its efficiency since it restores the formation pressure and improves oil displacement. EOR increases crude oil’s fluidity/mobility, so its handling and extraction becomes easier, allowing increased production.
Usually, companies that implement EOR systems have a clear long-term corporate vision about the exploitation of hydrocarbon reserves and look for ways to optimize it.
The interest in these systems lies in the fact that they both can be implemented at an early stage of the extraction process and at a mature stage. This advantage makes these systems a great option for optimizing processes and improving efficiency. However, it is essential not to lose sight of 3 criteria when deciding to implement an EOR system:
By implementing our EOR systems, eSteam™ or NaNoEOR™ we can put in place different operating models. At Future Energy, we are experts in downhole steam injection and nanotechnology for enhanced oil recovery which allow us to introduce high-quality steam or game-changing nanomaterials into oil fields for significant enhanced oil recovery for a low cost per barrel of oil produced.

Nanotechnology for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is an emerging technology for the extraction of heavy oil, light sweet crude and tight/shale oil formations.

State-of the-Art EOR Technology
NaNoEOR™ is a transformative EOR technology that eliminates the need for fuel and water to enhance heavy oil recovery and also increases oil recovery for hydraulically fractured tight/shale oil reservoirs.
For five decades, polymer and alkaline chemical surfactants have been injected into reservoirs to enhance oil production, but results have been minimal with up to only 20% increase in oil production. In recent years, researchers have published over 300 papers and patents. A variety of nanomaterials have been evaluated but worldwide researchers have not shown exceptional oil recovery results in the lab.
NaNoEOR™ provides a transformative and disruptive zero-emissions EOR approach by creating a novel reaction in the reservoir that achieves the following:
1) significantly reduces oil viscosity that increases the permeability and reduces residual oil saturation
2) emulsifies the oil into tiny droplets that remain suspended in the water
3) achieves a reduction in interfacial tension of water-oil interface that enhances fluid flow
4) causes wettability alteration for improved sweep efficiency maximizing oil mobility for increased oil production.
Thus, chemical surfactants could be usurped by NaNoEOR’s nanotechnology.
