The Company’s first full-scale EOR venture was inaugurated in October 2010. The Marmul project in the south of its concession area – where polymer has been added as a thickening agent to water and injected into the field to sweep oil to producing wells - was the first of its type in the Middle East.
The Company is breaking new ground with major projects involving the three advanced EOR techniques: miscible gas injection, thermal recovery and chemical. PDO is one of the few oil companies in the world employing all the three main available technologies at full scale. This in return ensures that oil and gas production remains an important contributor to Oman’s economy and that we can continue to play our part in meeting the world’s energy needs well into the future.
