    Typically less than half of the known oil in place is recovered from oil fields using conventional oil recovery techniques. The challenges of implementing EOR offshore will be reviewed covering low salinity water flooding, chemical flooding and miscible flooding. An overview of the potential for applying EOR processes in UK Continental Shelf fields will be discussed along with the major issues that need to be addressed.

    Richard Moore will bring along his Raspberry Pi and give a whistle-stop tour of its features, installation and use. The Raspberry Pi is an extra-ordinarily inexpensive computer with huge potential as an education aid and for serious work. It is 2012's answer to the fondly remembered BBC micro, but at a fraction of the price and with considerably more computing power to its elbow.

    The presentation focusses on the design methodology for DataFish, a met-ocean survey buoy designed to withstand tidal streams of up to 10 knots and statistical wave heights of 5m, and how it is being used to provide turbine developers with useful data that enable them to, assess the available energy resource, plan the siting of devices, understand flow dynamics, monitor the effect on wildlife, and monitor turbine performance.
