Prevention and Control of Corrosion-Induced Asphaltene Deposition
Although in oil production multiple problems occur simultaneously, the solution strategy is typically presented by addressing one problem at a time. The objective of this thesis is to provide insight into the detrimental ...
Visualization of Crude Oil Displacement by Foam Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in Microfluidic Devices
Foam flooding, as an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process, has become of great interest to the oil industry. However, the mechanism of oil displacement by foam has not been fully understood. This thesis describes the ...
Influence of Electrostatic Potential to Wettability in Brine-Oil-Minerals System
This study improves the microscopic understanding of electrostatic potential to a reservoir’s wettability, defined as the tendency of oil-wet or water-wet. Current conclusions about the wettability of oil reservoirs continue ...
Moving of Magnetic Clusters Driven by an Applied Eccentric Rotational Magnetic Field
Magnetic swimmers have been studied with the purpose of applying them to mimic the motion of organisms in fluids. Clusters formed by self-assembled magnetic particles is one the possible approaches for that purpose. A ...
Additives to Minimize Viscosity Reduction for Borate-Crosslinked Guar under High Pressure
Borate-crosslinked guar is commonly used in hydraulic fracturing. The stimulation process conditions occur at temperatures between100-300 °F and high pressures up to 8000 psi. The viscosity of the borate-crosslinked guar ...
