Organic Oil Recovery (OOR) is a new direction in enhanced oil recovery. It is a breakthrough of low cost, no CAPEX requirement, oil recovery. OOR offers oil operators an advanced, state-of-the-art secondary or tertiary oil recovery technology. Combining petroleum engineering and breakthrough biotechnology, OOR produces more oil, lowers lifting cost and allows the optimization of a field’s potential. OOR provides field operators with an improved return-on-expenditure and an opportunity to increase production at a very low cost per incremental barrel.
65% of the world's oil is trapped in existing oil fields. Bios Energy Corp’s OOR, with its micro-droplet technology, can assist in the recovery of a substantial amount of the world's trapped oil.
Applied through existing water-flood operations, OOR works entirely within the natural ecology of the oil reservoir by selectively stimulating particular species of the formation's resident microbes with custom-formulated, biodegradable and organic nutrients. The targeted microbes proliferate as a result of these specialized nutrients and then interact with immobile, trapped oil, affecting the surface tension and reducing the globules to unique microscopic droplets – micro droplets. These micro droplets alter the interfacial tension between oil and water to allow oil to flow more freely through the reservoir to the producing wells. The photos above depict microbial activity and the formation of a smaller droplet from a larger oil droplet. The new smaller droplet will also be deformed into smaller droplets as well. This simple change in the oil reservoir is a major and unprecedented breakthrough in oil recovery technology.
