A new approach for quantitative mapping of retention mechanisms of associative polymers in porous media. (2021)
Journal Article
AFOLABI, R.O., OLUYEMI, G.F., OFFICER, S. and UGWU, J.O. 2021. A new approach for quantitative mapping of retention mechanisms of associative polymers in porous media. Journal of molecular liquids [online], 343, article 117685. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.molliq.2021.117685

The retention of associative polymer molecules poses a significant challenge for its transport in porous media, and this arises due to the hydrophobic interactions that exists between the retained molecules. The known experimental approach in literat... Read More about A new approach for quantitative mapping of retention mechanisms of associative polymers in porous media..

Effect of two-phase gas-liquid flow patterns on cuttings transport efficiency. (2021)
Journal Article
SALUBI, V., MAHON, R., OLUYEMI, G. and OYENEYIN, B. 2021. Effect of two-phase gas-liquid flow patterns on cuttings transport efficiency. Journal of petroleum science and engineering [online], In Press, article 109281. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.petrol.2021.109281

Effective cuttings transport and accurate drilling hydraulics prediction remain issues of concern during drilling operations of horizontal, extended reach and multilateral wells. While several studies have adopted a two- or three-layered modelling ap... Read More about Effect of two-phase gas-liquid flow patterns on cuttings transport efficiency..

Effect of produced sand particles and fines on scale inhibitor: a review. (2021)
Journal Article
ANYANWU, U.C. and OLUYEMI, G.F. 2021. Effect of produced sand particles and fines on scale inhibitor: a review. Colloids and interfaces [online], 5(3), article 35. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/colloids5030035

Application of scale inhibitors in oil and gas production is aimed at mitigating scale blockage during production. Many experimental, mathematical, and numerical simulation modeling works have been carried out to evaluate behavior, performance, and i...

Horizontal stress rotation due to reservoir depletion. (2021)
Presentation / Conference
HAMID, O., SANAEE, R. and OLUYEMI, G. 2021. Horizontal stress rotation due to reservoir depletion. Presented at 55th US rock mechanics/geomechanics American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA) symposium 2021 (ARMA 2021), 18-25 June 2021, [virtual conference].

The principal stress rotations axes are observed due to fluid injection into reservoirs, hydrocarbon production, and around the fractures during wellbore stimulation operation and faults. Local stress fields around the fractures will change during re... Read More about Horizontal stress rotation due to reservoir depletion..

Experimental investigation of the effect of temperature on two-phase oil-water relative permeability. (2021)
Journal Article
BALOGUN, Y., IYI, D., FAISAL, N., OYENEYIN, B., OLUYEMI, G. and MAHON, R. 2021. Experimental investigation of the effect of temperature on two-phase oil-water relative permeability. Journal of petroleum science and engineering [online], 203, article ID 108645. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.petrol.2021.108645

Relative permeability is affected by several flow parameters, mainly the operating temperature and fluid viscosity. Fluid viscosities change with temperature, which correspondingly affects the relative permeability. Temperature is believed to have a...
