Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute


The mission of EORI is to facilitate a meaningful and measurable increase in recoverable reserves and production of oil and natural gas in Wyoming that may otherwise not be realized. Key to this is the effective and efficient transfer of relevant technology, information, and knowledge to Wyoming producers. EORI believes that its mission is being met when producers consider EORI as a vital source of relevant technology, information, expertise, and knowledge for Wyoming fields.



$500,000 Request for Proposals (RFP) for Wyoming Reservoir Pilot Test Data Acquisition Program (WRPTDAP)



The Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) is pleased to announce the initiation of a Request for Proposal (RFP) designed to acquire real world Wyoming reservoir operating data in partnership with various technology vendors and Wyoming operators. Data collected from approved projects will be used by the Institute’s research, engineering and geology staff to analyze Wyoming reservoirs and technologies. The goal being to suggest improved, economic methods for recovering larger volumes of stranded oil and gas which is at the heart of the Institute’s mission and legislative mandate.

The program offers cost sharing on a dollar for dollar basis (50% or 1:1) with successful applicants. EORI will provide up to half of the direct costs to conduct the study until the budget of $500,000 is exhausted or until June 30, 2018. The Institute will consider a number of projects to be funded that will address a variety of research topics. This program is open to all oil and gas operators and oil and gas industry vendors doing business in the State of Wyoming producing oil and gas from reservoirs in the state.

Improved and Enhanced Oil Recovery

Improved oil recovery (IOR) occurs throughout the productive life of a reservoir and includes well stimulations, pumps, infill drilling and other facilities operations that improve recovery.
Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) involves modifying fluid – fluid and fluid – rock interactions within the reservoir in order to improve recovery.
