Hydrophobically associating polymers for enhanced oil recovery, part b: a review of modelling approach to flow in porous media. (2019)
Journal Article
AFOLABI, R.O., OLUYEMI, G.F., OFFICER, S. and UGWU, J.O. 2019. Hydrophobically associating polymers for enhanced oil recovery, part b: a review of modelling approach to flow in porous media. Journal of molecular liquids [online], 293, article ID 111495. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.molliq.2019.111495

Polymer flow in porous media represents an entirely different scenario compared to bulk flow analysis using viscometers. This is due to the geometry and configuration of the medium which is made up of converging-diverging flow paths. In this article,...

Sand failure and production occurs when the formation stress exceeds the strength of the formation which is derived majorly from the natural material that cements the sand grain and cohesive forces. This study investigates the effects of scale inhibi... Read More about Evaluation of interactions between oilfield chemicals and reservoir rocks..

Fuzzy logic applied to value of information assessment in oil and gas projects. (2019)
Journal Article
