My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 10th March, 2018. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The talk will be presented by Ali Sabzabadi
The term Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is being used in petroleum industry as Tertiary oil recovery whereby additional recovery can be obtained after natural recovery processes and conventional methods (e.g. water injection) have been exhausted. The EOR processes can be broken down in to three main categories, Thermal EOR (e.g. Steam injection), Immiscible/Miscible EOR (e.g. Lean Gas, CO2 injection) and Chemical EOR (e.g. Alkaline/Surfactant/Polymer injection). The field in focus that has been studied for Chemical EOR (CEOR) is an offshore oil field development in the Malay Basin in Peninsular Malaysia operated by PETRONAS Carigali, with Exxon as 50% stake holder.
Ali Sabzabadi holds a MEng. In Petroleum Engineering from Imperial College London, and a Chartered Petroleum Engineer with Energy Institute and member of UK Engineering Council. He has over 19 years of experience in Petroleum Engineering specialised in classical and applied reservoir engineering, Nu-merical Simulation, Full Field Development and Planning, Reservoir Management and Surveillance. His current role is leading an integrated subsurface technical team responsible for reservoir studies, full field reviews and developments up to EOR evaluations For Angsi and Besar fields in peninsular Malay-sia, and recently with Sarawak Oil FDP division. He has completed Full Field Development (FDP) plan for first offshore Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery project for biggest oil producer field in Peninsular Malaysia. Have authored and co-authored few technical papers (SPE 165294, IPTC 18150, IPTC 18257).
