More than 250 industry professionals from across the state and country will convene for the eighth annual Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) CO2 Conference in Casper July 9-10 at the Casper Events Center.

They will learn about and discuss new and emerging research and technologies relevant to carbon dioxide flooding for enhanced oil recovery in existing Wyoming fields.

Located at the University of Wyoming, the EORI works to help the state of Wyoming and its energy producers recover large resources of stranded oil in depleted oil reservoirs as rapidly, responsibly and economically as possible. EORI is the only institution devoted entirely to enhanced oil recovery in Wyoming oil fields.

According to the University of Wyoming, the institute primarily focuses on applying new technology through field demonstrations, and supports additional development work as necessary to support commercial-scale implementation. As part of this commitment, the institute has adopted a culture consistent with that of the state’s oil producers. EORI’s priorities and values align with the oil industry’s priorities and values; the institute talks industry language; and its projects meet industry standards.

A total of 7.5 million barrels of oil were produced from Wyoming CO2 EOR floods during 2013. This equates to 12.5 percent of Wyoming’s annual oil production.
