The global enhanced oil recovery (EOR) market experienced double-digit growth during 2014-2019. Enhanced oil recovery (EOR), also known as tertiary recovery, refers to the process through which otherwise immobile residual oil is mobilized either physically, chemically or thermally. As primary and secondary oil recovery methods can leave up to 75% of the oil in the reservoir, oil extracting companies have started relying on EOR or tertiary oil recovery methods. Thermal recovery, gas injection and chemical injection are the most commonly used EOR techniques across the globe. Although most of the EOR technologies are currently used offshore, oil companies are developing technologies to expand onshore EOR methods. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global enhanced oil recovery (EOR) market to exhibit strong growth during the forecast period (2020-2025).
Over the past few years, the rapid depletion of fossil fuels has contributed to the increasing application of EOR technologies in the oil and gas industry. The rising demand for oil has further added to the growing demand for EOR worldwide. In addition, several governments around the world are taking initiatives for utilizing advanced technologies for oil extraction to achieve higher profits from existing oil and gas fields. For example, countries like China and India are offering financial incentives to attract multinational companies to invest in the enhanced oil recovery market. In line with this, various companies all over the world are engaging in R&D activities to improve oil recovery. For instance, British Petroleum has developed advanced techniques that can extract oil using thermally activated microscopic particles which expand deep into the reservoir.
