Hydrophobic interactions are an inherent property of associative polymers which results in the formation of molecular aggregates. The loss of hydrophobic interactions under reservoir conditions have been reported, and this results in increased fluid...

Uncommon and untested biopolymers in field pilot studies, but applied in laboratory studies are combined with Al2O3 nanoparticles to form nanocomposites for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) performance evaluation. Core plug samples of the Niger Delta regi... Read More about Effect of aluminum oxide nanoparticles on the rheology and stability of a biopolymer for enhanced oil recovery..
