Title: Organic Oil Recovery: A Dramatic New Twist Bringing New Life to Mature Oil Fields

Titan Oil Recovery has a new organic oil recovery process to increase oil production and ultimate recovery from oil fields.  The Titan Process manages the biology and ecology of the oil reservoir to improve production.  The process crosses boundaries of Petroleum Engineering and Microbiology to stimulate resident microorganisms with specifically tailored, environmentally benign nutrient mixtures. Field successes are documented and reported.
