TEHRAN (Shana) -- The head of the Faculty of Oil and Gas Engineering of Sahand University of Technology said with the implementation of the technological development plan of Soroush field, the recovery rate of this field will increase from currently 6% to more than 10%.

Seyed Alireza Tabatabai-Nejad, speaking on the sidelines of the 25th Iran Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Exhibition, told Shana: "This amount is our minimum forecast in the field and we hope to increase the recovery rate of Soroush Field to more than these figures."

He stated that Soroush Field technological development studies project will enter the pilot phase in the next year.

"Studies and experiments are continuing, but most likely, polymer injection will be the final and selected option for increasing oil recovery from the oil field," he added.
