ESal, LLC Chief Technology Officer, Geoffrey Thyne Ph.D, was interviewed by Susan Nash, Director of Innovation & Emerging Science and Technology with the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) for AAPG’s Science and Technology Showcase.

In the interview, Dr. Thyne discusses the science behind ESal’s breakthrough Engineered Salinity solution, which optimizes wettability for specific reservoir characteristics and can increase recoveries of original oil in place between 5-10% at a cost ranging between $0.50 and $4.00 per incremental barrel.

The Engineered Salinity solution does not use chemicals, nor does it require additional investment in equipment or downtime to install.

The solution is effective in optimizing new well completions as well as improving the performance of waterflood and enhanced oil recovery projects.

Are You Working In The Oil Field Of The Future?

Contrary to trending belief, we don’t see oil on the verge of disappearing in favor of alternative energy sources. In fact, it’s just the opposite. We’re on the cusp of what could be the most exciting frontier for oil yet: What we at Engineered Salinity (ESal) describe as The Oil Field Of The Future.

Oil Recovery As Profit Driver: What Kind Of Change Can $1.62 Per Barrel Create?

As we see the news from the Middle East that there will be reductions in production through the end of this year, the projections are that oil prices will skyrocket past $100 per barrel. The mindset of some in the industry may be, “It doesn’t matter how high oil goes. People will still buy it because they have to buy it.”

Well, yes and no.
