This paper presents an investigation of the enhanced oil recovery (EOR) potential in the South Slattery Minnelusa formation. The South Slattery Field, which is characterized by low permeability and high saline brine, is stepping into the economic limits of secondary waterflood. A chemical flooding simulation model which was based on experimental parameters was set up for the potential investigation of EOR. Both polymer and surfactant-polymer floods were investigated. The recoveries of these EOR methods are presented, and the development efficiencies are analyzed.
