Waterflooding describes technologies that can be applied to recover oil that cannot be produced by primary recovery or waterflooding. These technologies include polymer, micellar-polymer, and CO2 flooding, as well as thermal-recovery processes that are typically implemented following primary production. A prior understanding of basic petrophysics, fluid properties, and material balances is recommended.

Green is the author or co-author of 67 refereed publications and more than 100 technical meeting presentations and is the co-author of the SPE textbook Enhanced Oil Recovery. He holds a BS degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa and MS and PhD degrees in chemical engineering from the University of Oklahoma. Green has served as an SPE Distinguished Lecturer and is the recipient of the SPE Distinguished Achievement Award for Petroleum Engineering Faculty and the IOR Pioneer Award; he was named an Honorary Member of SPE in 2007. He is also a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. 

G. Paul Willhite is the Ross H. Forney Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Kansas. He has been a member of the faculty since 1969, serving as chair of the department from 1988 to 1996 and interim chair from 2003 to 2004. In 1974, he cofounded the Tertiary Oil Recovery Project and served as codirector from 1974 to 2009. Before joining the faculty, he worked in the Production Research Division of Continental Oil Company in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Willhite holds a BS degree from Iowa State University and a PhD degree from Northwestern University, both in chemical engineering.
