Petroleum Engineering in the 21 st Century Key Paradigm Solve real-world petroleum engineering problems using scientific principles from mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science. keywords: real-world, interdisciplinary Enhanced oil-recovery is an important engineering pursuit. Engineering an EOR project requires: Applying the knowledge of physics to predict movement of fluids in the reservoir Investigating the nature of chemical interactions between the oil and displacing fluid such as CO2 – Formulating a mathematical model that reflects the nature of physical and chemical interactions – Solving the mathematical model using modern computers and complex computer codes written in modern programming languages such as JAVA, C++
