Wyoming IOR/EOR Conference

The Annual Wyoming IOR/EOR Conferences are broad in scope and attempt to address theoretical and practical aspects of a range of IOR/EOR methods. As the conference tagline suggests, the main goal is to recover Wyoming’s stranded oil, by any means practical. We offer presentations from global academic leaders in Enhanced Oil Recovery, as well as case study presentations related to the innovative application of technologies in Wyoming oil fields.
