KARACHI: Speakers at a seminar held on ‘Enhanced Oil Recovery’ stressed that all efforts should be made to reinvigorate the exploration and production (E&P) activities in Pakistan as the hydrocarbons are expected to remain an integral source for the country’s energy needs.

Petroleum Institute of Pakistan (PIP), a representative body of the oil and gas sectors in Pakistan organized the seminar in collaboration with the Institution of Engineers Pakistan (IEP) and NED University of Engineering and Technology (NED) on Thursday.

The seminar provided an overview of enhanced oil recovery concepts, technologies and applications models along with implementation processes/strategies used by major oil companies. Case studies were also presented to highlight the challenges during EOR implementation.

This was a joint effort of PIP, NED and IEP to develop industry and academia partnerships and linkages, which can play a major role in broadening the knowledge base and help in workforce development from within the country, says a statement.
