Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute

The Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) assists Wyoming oil producers with recovery of Wyoming's stranded oil.  EORI's mission includes:

  • Technology Development - Apply existing EOR technology to Wyoming reservoirs and create new knowledge when necessary.
  • Technology Demonstration - Facilitate the testing, evaluation, and documentation of EOR technologies in real world environments.
  • Technology Transfer - Benchmark innovative petroleum industry practices and transfer "know how" to Wyoming operators through workshops, conferences, and projects.
  • Economic Development - Maximize economic potential for application of EOR in Wyoming.

EORI has estimated that additional recovery of oil from Wyoming's depleted oil fields using advanced EOR technology could total more than 1 billion barrels of additional production over the next 20 years.
