Web Application for Enhanced/Improved Oil Recovery Analysis

Geospatial Forum Series

Wyoming is one of the leading oil producing states in the US. To maximize production, producers are currently employing enhanced and improved oil recovery (EOR/IOR) techniques. These methods extract oil from hydrocarbon resources deemed uneconomic or inaccessible through traditional methods. This talk presents a GIS-supported web application developed by WyGISC to (1) provide users with access to oil reservoir data as well as geospatial mapping and analytical tools, and (2) promote coordinated EOR/IOR activities in Wyoming.
