Fundamentals of Enhanced Oil Recovery Methods for Unconventional Oil Reservoirs, Volume 67 provides important guidance on which EOR methods work in shale and tight oil reservoirs. This book helps readers learn the main fluid and rock properties of shale and tight reservoirs—which are the main target for EOR techniques—and understand the physical and chemical mechanisms for the injected EOR fluids to enhance oil recovery in shale and tight oil reservoirs. The book explains the effects of complex hydraulic fractures and natural fractures on the performance of each EOR technique.
The book describes the parameters affecting obtained oil recovery by injecting different EOR methods in both the microscopic and macroscopic levels of ULR. This book also provides proxy models to associate the functionality of the improved oil recovery by injecting different EOR methods with different operating parameters, rock, and fluid properties. The book provides profesasionals working in the petroleum industry the know-how to conduct a successful project for different EOR methods in shale plays, while it also helps academics and students in understanding the basics and principles that make the performance of EOR methods so different in conventional reservoirs and unconventional formations.
- Provides a general workflow for how to conduct a successful project for different EOR methods in these shale plays
- Provides general guidelines for how to select the best EOR method according to the reservoir characteristics and wells stimulation criteria
- Explains the basics and principles that make the performance of EOR methods so different in conventional reservoirs versus unconventional formations

Dr. Baojun Bai holds PhD degrees in Petroleum Engineering from New Mexico Tech and in Petroleum Geology from China University of Geoscience-Beijing. He has seven years of industry experience as a reservoir engineer and head of conformance-control Team of RIPED, PetroChina. Dr. Bai was a post-Doctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology before joining Missouri S&T in 2006. He has more than 20 years of experience in enhanced oil recovery, unconventional reservoirs conformance control, CO2 sequestration and characterizations. He has pioneered the technology of using preformed particle gel for conformance control, which has been successfully applied in more than 10,000 wells to reduce water production and enhance oil recovery. He has published more than 170 papers in peer-reviewed journals and over 120 papers in SPE conferences and he is a technical committee member of SPE ACTE 2016-2019 and SPE Asia Pacific Oil&Gas Conference and Exhibition (APOGCE) 2015-2019 as well as a member of EU Academy of Sciences and an SPE distinguished member.
