Enhanced oil recovery methods can be divided into three major categories:
thermal processes which include steam flooding, Steam stimulation, and in-situ
combustion; chemical processes which include Surfactant-polymer injection,
polymer flooding, and caustic flooding; and miscible displacement processes
which include miscible hydrocarbon displacement, carbon dioxide injection, and
inert gas injection. All methods involve the injection of large amounts of rather
expensive fluids ...

This review describes these chemicals, why they are used, and recent
developments. These chemicals include common inorganic salts, transition metal
compounds , common organic chemicals and solvents, water-soluble and oil-
soluble polyTM61"5* an<3 surfactants. As existing fields become depleted, use of
chemistry to maintain production via well stimulation, more efficient secondary
recovery operations, and enhanced oil recovery become ever more important .

Although several wells had been drilled on this lease by oil-producing
companies, oil production had not proved economically feasible. This research
combines modern chemical explosive fracturing techniques (4) with heat and
solvent treatments to extract the oil. With chemical explosives, a rub- blized
condition was created within the interwell zone for establishing communication
between wells. An aromatic-type solvent was used to dilute the oil and reduce
viscosity. The purpose of ...

Oil. Degrading. Bacteria. Strains. Chan Tian, Shengyan Tian, Xianbin Liu and
Lulu Qin Abstract In order to find the microbe suited to microbial enhanced oil
recovery (MEOR), three bacterial strains DS1, DS2, and DS3 with excellent
degrading effect on thick oil were isolated from the thick oil and water reservoir of
oil well 51-82# in Erlian Oil Field. The three bacteria were identified as
Acinetobacter sp., Enterococcus sp. and Brevibacterium sp. through 16S rDNA
sequence similarity ...

Today, colloid and interface science is a flourishing branch of learning: it
penetrates many fields of study such as biology, physics, physical organic
chemistry, and inorganic chemistry; it bears upon numerous modern technical
developments such as enhanced oil recovery, mineral flotation, and paper de-
inking, and it can be called truly interdisciplinary. Over the past 20 years, the
pace of change in colloid and interface science has been very fast and wide
ranging, and one can even ...

Commenting on this possibility, Hall (1994) concludes that "displacing fossil fuel
with biomass sustainably grown and converted into useful energy with modern
conversion technologies would be more effective in decreasing atmospheric CO2
than sequestering carbon in ... At present oil prices, only inexpensive CO2 from
natural sources is used for enhanced oil recovery in the U.S. CO2 is transported
over distances of several hundred kilometers at a typical cost of $8/tC (IPCC
