Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is a generic term used for increasing the amounts of crude oil that can be extracted from an oil reservoir or an oilfield. Usu-ally this is done in an effort to increase the output of a matured field where con-ventional-recovery methods have been exhausted. EOR efforts require strong reser-voir characterization tech-niques i.e. fractured net-work mapping, permeability distribution through well tests, and permeability up-scaling.
