Application of Polymer and Nanomaterials for Heavy Oil Recovery: Lab Experiment and Numerical Simulation

Ehsan Aliabadian


This presentation shows that HPAM/GO nanosheet can improve the oil recovery by 7.8% compared to the HPAM solution. Dispersion of nanomaterials is the most important factor to design hybrid solutions for oil recovery. Retention of polymers should be considered for numerical simulations of chemical flooding.
