Applying the methods of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) for oil and gas fields has always many risks of economic and technology because EOR projects are influenced by many characteristic factors of the reservoir such as structure of reservoir, reservoir formation, geological properties, parameters of reservoir engineering, production technology to EOR application. Some EOR methods have been successfully applied in the world, but when these methods conduct in specific reservoir with different geological characteristics, tight production conditions have resulted in failures and ineffective economic, even caused dreadful aftermath to be handled in operations. Researches, evaluations and EOR applications in Vietnam are limited and only carried out on a laboratory scale. Therefore, the ability to be applied the EOR modern technology with a large scale or full field still faces many difficulties and the feasibility of projects is not high enough. The authors have been analysed all EOR projects successfully that applied many oil and gas fields in the world and then building EOR database. Based on EOR database, a study has been conducted on statistical analysis to build EOR screening criteria for reservoir parameters from past to now. The study also combined in-depth analysis algorithms such as Fuzzy, K - mean, PCA Artificial Intelligence to screen the optimal EOR method for sandstone reservoirs of Cuu Long Basin.
