Polymer fluids help sweeping more residual oil left in rocks, due to their unique rheological properties. Polymer flooding could avoid problems such as viscous fingering due to the differences in relative permeability of oil and water. In general, higher polymer molecular weights, a broader range...
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...
