Fred Wassmuth is the team lead for the Tight Oil & Water Flooding group. The team includes engineers, geologists, chemists, and physicists and has the objective to develop further develop enhanced oil recovery processes. As part of this research, the team has devised a set of sequential evaluations that move the technology from concept to the field application. Fred’s personal research in unconventional oil recovery has focussed on improved waterflooding for heavy oil, enhanced tight oil recovery and the application of conformance control technologies. This includes traditional chemical flooding methods such as polymer and various surfactant processes, and Fred has focused his efforts on several field projects to demonstrate the commercial application of improved water flooding heavy oils in Western Canada
