About Carbonate Reservoirs at Heriot-Watt University

Carbonate reservoirs contain over 60% of the world's remaining conventional oil reserves and account for over 30% of the world's daily oil production. However, most oil is left underground: on average less than 20% of available oil is recovered. A small (1% to 2%) increase will make a substantial impact on global hydrocarbon reserves. Due to their global importance, improved flow prediction and recovery in carbonate reservoirs are likely to be among some of the most significant developments for the oil and gas industry in the next decade.
