Sonangol EP Interview: Is Enhanced Oil Recovery the Future of Angola’s Oil Production?


Offshore Network releases exclusive interview with Geraldo Ramos, Senior Production Engineer at Sonangol EP, who discusses Enhanced Oil Recovery in West Africa, his vision for Angola's 2018 production landscape and the experience he gained from the North Sea - find out more here

With production decline a common challenge to offshore production in mature fields globally, operators in West Africa are taking advantage of innovative technical developments in enhanced oil recovery techniques to recover the maximum from their existing oil reserves.

Sonangol EP is one of those companies who, despite recent offshore pre-salt discoveries which should comfortably allow Angola to maintain its status as Africa's second largest oil producer, sees the need to ensure additional reserves are extracted from existing wells. In the below interview, Geraldo Ramos, Senior Production Engineer at Sonangol EP, discusses the future of Angolan oil production. He outlines:

• His research into Advanced Enhanced Oil Recovery techniques with a specific focus on Angolan offshore fields and why well intervention is crucial to West African operators
• How Artificial Intelligence models are used for selecting reservoir candidates and how a specifically designed multipurpose EOR rig was built within the scope of his project
• The opportunities in the deep and ultra-deep waters including pre-salt and why these green areas present some risks and a degree of uncertainty compared to exiting oilfields

Geraldo Ramos will be a keynote speaker at the Offshore Well Intervention Workshop West Coast of Africa (Accra, March 7-8) alongside well intervention & completions experts Ihechi Ojukwu (Chevron Nigeria), Kelechi Victor (Nigerian Agip), Anthony Oyewole (Chevron Nigeria) & Ifeanyi Ugbor (Shell Nigeria) and well engineering specialists including Andres Esono Ngui Obono (Marathon EG), Elike Mawuli (Tullow Oil) & Edward Kalu (Total Nigeria).
