(Kuala Lumpur=Koreanpress) Azmi Anuar = A group of Chemical Engineering students, calling themselves UMOne and from the  Faculty of Engineering, were the winners in the recent Enhanced Oil Recovery(EOR) Contest 2014 organised by Schlumberger.

With 85 teams from top universities across Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and the Philippines, participants were required to propose a development plan to optimize the Field Oil Recovery (FOE) and Net Present Value (NPV) of a given Brown Field (software) using EOR methods and ECLIPSE reservoir simulator. ECLIPSE is an industrial standard reservoir simulator software developed by Schlumberger.

A total of seven teams were shortlisted for the semi-finals. During the semi-finals, the top five teams with the highest NPV were given the opportunity to present at the grand finals. In the final round, UMOne proposed a development plan of the highest oil recovery and Net Present Value. UMOne recorded a NPV value of RM528.1 millions, which is about RM85.8 million higher than the second highest NPV value.

The grand finale was held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on June 12, 2014. During the final round, each team was required to justify their proposed EOR scheme, field economic evaluation and take tough technical questions from an expert panels of judges. Among the high profile judges were Dr. Nor Idah bt Kechut (Staff Researcher) from Petronas Research, Dr. Steve Flew (Subsurface Technical Director) from Petrofac, Dr. Abdolrahim Ataei (Principal Reservoir Engineer) from Petronas and M Faizal Sedaralit (Principal Reservoir Engineer) of EPTC (Petronas/Shell EOR Center).

UMOne’s proposal, which includes drilling 2 new horizontal wells across low permeability zones, was the key factor that made their proposal unique. In the end, based on the final presentation, the judges selected the following winners:

1. First prize (RM15, 000); UMOne from University of Malaya
2. Second place (RM7, 000); Le’af from University College Sedaya
