Enhanced Oil Recovery, Secondary, and Tertiary Recovery
RecoverySoft / May 16, 2018

Did you know that much of the oil in the ground is still present after primary recovery? In the kings english, that means there is still a lot of oil left in a well even after 10 years of pumping. The reason oil production slows is that the natural drive that once pushed oil aggressively towards the wellbore has subsided. Normally, the natural drive is either water or gas in the formation. In this article, we look to explain some of the common enhanced or secondary / tertiary methods of oil recovery. With oil hitting new highs every day, it is clear the cost benefit of utilizing technology to get at extra production makes sense. When oil was in the $ 10-20 range, the incremental cost of some enhanced oil recovery methods did not make economic sense. One of the most common secondary recovery methods is a waterflood. Essentially, a waterflood is a reintroduction of water into the formation to create a drive to push more oil towards the wellbore. To increase the efficiency of a waterflood, new methods utilize Alkaline-Surfactant-Polymer floods and some explorers are introducing microbes into the wellbore to increase the sweep efficiency of the flood, both…

Business Disaster Recovery
RecoverySoft / April 7, 2018

Technology is becoming increasingly necessary and crucial for the business world. It does not matter what type of business we’re talking about – everyone, from huge multinational corporations to small business run from home, uses computers now to get the jobs done. Bookkeeping, accounting, orders, shipping and receiving, financial records, customer and client records, product lists and catalogs, and more are all stored on computers and that makes those computers and the data contained on them crucial components of any size enterprise’s day to day operating. But computers are not infallible. They are subject to crashes, so smart business owners make sure to back up their data in case something like that happens, whether they use an external hard drive or a stack of discs to get the job done. Unfortunately, while that is an important step to take in making sure your business is secure, those external drives and discs are still potentially not secure enough – if a disaster, be it man made or natural, occurs, then not only can the computer itself be ruined, so can those backup drives and storage discs. And that’s why disaster recovery is extremely important for companies both large and small. “Disaster…

How to Recover Data From a Failed Hard Drive
RecoverySoft / March 14, 2018

When a hard drive fails with data on it that is not backed up, it can be frustrating. Without the data backed up, it has to be physically recovered from the drive itself which won’t read in your computer in it’s current state. The most common option is to use a paid service that recovers data on the drive. This normally costs at least $1000 for a standard drive with an extra fee per gigabyte of recovered data. This process will work, will take a number of weeks at time, but is generally costly. If the data seriously can’t be replaced this is a good option. There is one trick that some do with a drive that is failing. It’s something that you can use at your own risk and doesn’t actually work all the time. If you can’t afford data recovery services and can’t access the drive, there is nothing to lose. Take the hard drive and put it into a sealed bag like a lunch bag. Take this and put it into the freezer for about 24 hours. Take the drive out and instantly connect it to the computer and try to access the drive. The frozen drive…
