In the United States, known fields contain about 300 billion bbl of oil which will not be recovered because of economic and technological limitations. This oil is the target of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).
However, even given reasonable improvements in oil price policy and process technology, the success of EOR projects is not guaranteed. The high cost of the injected materials and the necessity of maintaining certain critical conditions at the injection front will require much more geologic assistance to the reservoir engineers than has been provided for conventional recovery processes.
