Enhanced Oil Recovery

Boost our oil recovery

Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is a process to boost the amount of recoverable oil, usually by injecting gas, steam, water or chemicals into the reservoir. This process restores formation pressure and reduces the viscosity of the oil to force the oil out of the ground.
Vallourec unique manufacturing capabilities and technical expertise, such as heavy wall pipe, high strength grades or materials suitable for very sour environment, allows us to provide you with turnkey solutions for your EOR needs.
