Effect of viscoelasticity and alkali on heavy oil EOR performance using HPAM, 'AA-NVP' co- and cross-linked polymersDownload
Polymer solutions are characterized based on their viscoelasticity to improve the displacement efficiency for enhanced oil recovery. Contribution of viscoelastic polymers solution’s elasticity on oil recovery needs to be analyzed thoroughly for better screening of polymers for field operations....
This current work investigates pore structure of various reservoir-rock materials using state-of-the-art microscopy such as micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) and Focused Ion Beam-Scanning electron Microscopy (FIB-SEM). Novel sample preparation methods have been developed for such rock cores,...
Study of Effects of Polymer Elasticity on Enhanced Oil Recovery by Core Flooding and Visualization ExperimentsDownload
Polymer flooding is the simplest and one of the most widely used chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques. Viscoelasticity of polymers is known to contribute significantly towards improved displacement efficiency in polymer flood operations. But the contribution of elasticity of...
