Recent Advances in Chemical Flooding

Monday, 3 October
371 A-C
Technical Session
Chemical flooding as an EOR technique started gaining the attention lately compared to other thermal and gas methods due to the recent advancements in chemicals toward improving oil recovery. This session discusses the breakthroughs in different chemicals including polymer gels, acids, surfactants, and alkali for improving displacement efficiency through wettability alteration as well as sweep efficiency through improved mobility and conformance.
