Oil production from any well goes through three stages. The primary organize happens when the well weight lowers, and the secondary organize occurs when the well weight increases. This current approach involves putting sea or brackish water into the well to raise the well weight and force the oil up, hence improving oil recovery. 20–30% of the well reserve is taken after the primary and auxiliary stages of oil production. Despite the fact that the well is deemed exhausted, more than 70% of the oil has been extracted. At this time, the third organization, also known as enhanced oil recovery (EOR) or tertiary recovery, starts. Improved oil recovery might be the answer. EOR entails using heated and/or nonthermal methods to alter the qualities of unrefined oil in supplies, such as thickness and consistency, to ensure faster oil uprooting and, as a result, improved recovery. Warm EOR, which is the focus of this research, is often regarded as the most effective of all EOR techniques. We present a brief diagram of EOR classification in terms of warm and nonthermal strategies in this paper. In addition, a thorough examination of several warm EOR techniques is presented and discussed.
