Abstract

Petroleum Industry play important role in the commercial growth of any nation. Various technologies were employed to improve production and operation upstream. Still, some technologies need development in terms of cost-effective. The purpose of the review is to summarize the enhanced oil recovery process in the petroleum industry (upstream). Numerous components were shortened and studied to achieve the goal.
