Sword is a unique software package designed for rapid reservoir, field or prospect evaluation, fast screening and predictions of Improved Oil Recovery (IOR) methods potential. The fast screening and prediction techniques are based on multi-criterion models, proven analytical solutions, existing industry experience, field practice and expert knowledge in IOR applications.

At the moment analytical methods may be used to evaluate water, gas (immiscible and miscible), polymer, surfactant, cyclic, wag and steam injection. Sword has been developed in close co-operation between research and the oil industry. Currently SWORD is further developed in a JIP sponsored by BG Group, GdF Suez and IRIS. As part of the development a new web-based interface is scheduled to be launched in Q3 2010.
