Following significant interest from technology developers, the Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF) will present proposals to its Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members for a potential collaborative joint industry project (JIP) on hybrid enhanced oil recovery (EOR).

The three ITF member companies – ADNOC/ADMA, Kuwait Oil Company and Petroleum Development Oman - had the opportunity to explore 16 developer abstracts to hybrid EOR, which they had raised as a key technology challenge for the region.

It is recognised globally that significant volumes of oil are left bypassed after primary and secondary recovery methods. ITF GCC members have identified a drive towards gas injection, chemical injection and thermal injection technologies which could prove to be a stepping stone to improving recovery in fields which have considerable residual hydrocarbons.
