Application of Foam for Mobility Control in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Process
This thesis focuses on the application of foam for mobility control in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process. The performance of foam and surfactants was evaluated by systematic laboratory study. This includes the screening ...
Surfactant Enhanced Oil Recovery
The application of surfactants in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is the central theme of this thesis. The use of different EOR methods, thermal, gas flooding, surfactant flooding, etc. to improve the recovery of oil has become ...
Transport of Components and Phases in a Surfactant/Foam
The transport of components and phases plays a fundamental role in the success of an EOR process. Because many reservoirs have harsh conditions of salinity, temperature and rock heterogeneity, which limit process options, ...
A Multiscale Study of Foam: The Phase Behavior, Transport, and Rheology of Foam in Porous Media
This dissertation provides an in-depth multiscale understanding of the foam flow in porous media for subsurface applications such as gas mobility control, aquifer remediation, CO2 sequestration, water production control ...
