Low-Energy Processes for Unconventional Oil Recovery
Dr. Reza Fassihi is a distinguished advisor with BHP in Houston and is responsible for subsurface technical assurance on global projects. Prior to this he was the unconventional technology manager with BP. He has over 30 years of experience in petroleum research, development, and reservoir management, including waterflood and EOR projects, and he has co-authored more than 40 papers on a broad range of petroleum engineering and research subjects. He obtained a PhD degree in petroleum engineering from Stanford University.
Dr. Tony Kovscek is professor at Stanford University since 1996 and is the Keleen and Carlton Beal Professor as well as the current chairman of the Energy Resources Department. His PhD research was in chemical engineering at the University of California at Berkeley. He has authored over 100 peer-reviewed publications, mainly focusing on enhanced recovery processes for unconventional resources.
Low-Energy Processes for Unconventional Oil Recovery fills a gap in oil and gas literature. Today, in our globalized society, the oil industry has to demonstrate how oil recovery can be done responsibly over the life-cycle of the project, clearly articulating energy efficiency as well as limiting CO2 and environmental footprints of the chosen recovery processes. The authors bring together their complementing expertise to provide the reader with an in-depth discussion of a range of alternative recovery techniques. Most recovery methods included are focused on heavy oil recovery, but some have applications in light oil reservoirs as well. With the recent industry drive and focus to recover hydrocarbons from tight rock and shale resources, a chapter has also been devoted to shale oil recovery.
