This publication covers all points of polymer flooding, an better oil restoration process utilizing water soluble polymers to extend the viscosity of flood water, for the displacement of crude oil from porous reservoir rocks. even supposing this system is changing into more and more very important, there's little or no literature to be had for the engineer wishing to embark on the sort of venture. long ago, polymer flooding was once mostly the topic of study. the result of this learn are unfold over an enormous variety of unmarried guides, making it tricky for somebody who has now not stored up to date with advancements over the past 10 to fifteen years to pass judgement on the suitability of polymer flooding to a selected box case. This booklet attempts to fill that hole. the fundamental mechanisms of the method are defined and standards given the place it can be hired. uncomplicated components of the chemistry of EOR-polymers are supplied. the basics of polymer physics, equivalent to rheology, move in porous media and adsorption, are derived. functional tricks on blending and checking out of polymers within the laboratory are given, in addition to directions for his or her program within the oil box. Polymer flooding is illustrated via a few case histories and the economics of the equipment are tested. For the basic topics, instance calculations are further. An fundamental ebook for reservoir engineers, creation engineers and laboratory technicians in the petroleum undefined.
