Laboratory Screening Tests are suggested to evaluate potential enhanced oil recovery projects. Standardized procedures are used to study the feasibility of (1) miscible/CO2 projects, (2) thermal processes, and (3) chemical processes.

The Screening Tests are divided into four sections: crude oil characterization, injection water studies, reservoir core characterization, and displacement studies in porous media.

These Screening Tests augment geologic and engineering studies and supplement (but do not replace) the more commonly known core analysis programs.
