My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 18th May, 2016. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The talk will be presented by Ir. Razak Yakob. Please come, or I’ll be beaten up in a dark alley.
In order to sustain the local production EOR is one of the major agenda in our Economic Transformation Program. It is one of the 13 Entry Points Project that supports the Oil, Gas and Energy NKEA (National Key Economic Areas). Even with the high recovery factor, EOR is still a very challenging program to be implemented in Malaysia due to the offshore environment, formation characteristics, high investment cost, and expertise availability. This talk shall focus on sharing the knowledge of what EOR is and the challenges of implementing it in Malaysia.
