Shale oil wells produce by pressure depletion and solution gas drive - solution gas expands as reservoir pressure is reduced, pushing oil through interconnected matrix pore spaces. In most shale oil reservoirs, the low porosity and permeability results in very low oil recovery, often only about 5% of the oil in place.
SuperEOR and UltraEOR are OIL EXTRACTION processes, using a designed solvent composition, to efficiently remove the oil from the shale matrix and bring it to the surface. Oil production cost and GHG emissions are half that of primary, and in some shale reservoirs 500% more oil can be recovered.
