Breaking the Barrier - Session 2
Description: In this session, ChampionX experts will discuss the breakthrough impact of cEOR and the typical process problems which may occur. We will also cover the adverse impacts on incumbent production chemical applications and how these can be addressed proactively via the use of specially developed chemistry, designed to tackle some of the unique challenges associated with back-produced chemical EOR.
Presenters Mark Zijlstra, Robin Shields, and Ben Lownie will share case histories from successful applications in treating issues caused by polymer flooding and other cEOR techniques.
Presenter: Mark Zijlstra, EOR Manager EMENA
About Mark: Mark leads ChampionX’s Enhanced Oil Recovery team for Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. He’s previously held technical, sales, and district management positions at ChampionX. Mark holds master’s degrees in both Chemical Engineering and Business. He is based in the Netherlands.
Presenter: Robin Shields, Technical Manager EOR
About Robin: Robin holds a BSc in Chemistry and has over 20 years’ industry experience. His previous role as a senior research fellow at Heriot-Watt University involved leading studies into water shut-off, polymer flooding, sand consolidation and low salinity waterflooding projects. Robin has authored or co-authored multiple research papers and peer-reviewed journal articles and has chaired or co-chaired SPE EOR and water management workshops.
Presenter: Ben Lownie, Technical Authority
About Ben: Ben joined ChampionX in 2006 and has held both sales and technical roles in our production chemistries business. With an initial focus on field deployments and production chemistry, Ben has supported customer capex projects in Europe from initial feasibility through to first oil. Ben’s experience includes delivery of effective chemical management systems, evaluation and troubleshooting of production chemistry risks, and more recently, the deployment and impact of ChampionX EOR technologies.
