EOR Workshop

Purpose and Scope

The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) is developing a Technical Session and Core Workshop on enhanced oil recovery (EOR) with an emphasis on mostly tight sandstones, in particular, the Hoxbar Group of rocks in the southern Oklahoma and STACK/SCOOP/Merge areas in the Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma. The Pennsylvanian (Missourian) Hoxbar Group is economically important to the Oklahoma petroleum industry. In the Anadarko Basin the Hoxbar Group (e.g., Marchand sandstone) has been a prolific producer of oil and gas. Technical and engineering presentations will include sedimentology, reservoir quality, sequence stratigraphy, geochemistry, geomechanical rock properties and integrated depositional and diagenetic evaluation of the tight sandstones applied to EOR. Reservoir heterogeneity and mineralogy (as related to petrophysics) are important components used to evaluate EOR. The workshop is focused on the key learnings from both operators and researchers on tight sandstones and associated shales directly relating to EOR practices. The results of this work can be applied to other tight sandstones as an analog worldwide. The OGS is soliciting both sponsorships and presentations for this workshop.

AIPG (The American Institute of Professional Geologists) has approved the EOR Workshop for CEUs and PDHs:

  • Technical Program on Thursday 11/14: 5 PDHs (0.5 CEUs)
  • Core Workshop on Friday 11/15: 5.5 PDHs (0.55 CEUs)

If you need a certificate of completion, these will be available at the event. You will indicate your need when you register. 



November 14: Technical Program, 
at Moore-Norman Technology Center - South Penn Campus (13301 S. Pennsylvania, Oklahoma City, OK 73170). 8:30am - 5:30pm

Students - $75

Before October 18 - $200

Beginning October 19 - $300

*Note: We will host an on-site social hour following the program from 5:30-7pm. There will be snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. Please plan to stick around for a bit.

November 15: Core Workshop, at Oklahoma Petroleum Information Center (OPIC) (2020 Industrial Blvd., Norman, OK 73069). 8:45am-12pm OR 1pm-4:15pm. Lunch included for both sessions from 12pm-1pm.

*Core workshop attendees must also register for the technical workshop. The AM and PM core workshops are filled as of 11/12/2019. You can be added to the waiting list in case of a cancellation.

$75 - half day workshop
