This ebook covers all points of polymer flooding, an more desirable oil restoration approach utilizing water soluble polymers to extend the viscosity of flood water, for the displacement of crude oil from porous reservoir rocks. even if this system is changing into more and more vital, there's little or no literature to be had for the engineer wishing to embark on any such undertaking. some time past, polymer flooding used to be typically the topic of analysis. the result of this learn are unfold over an enormous variety of unmarried guides, making it tricky for somebody who has no longer 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 e-book attempts to fill that hole. the fundamental mechanisms of the method are defined and standards given the place it can be hired. easy components of the chemistry of EOR-polymers are supplied. the basics of polymer physics, resembling rheology, circulate in porous media and adsorption, are derived. functional tricks on blending and trying out of polymers within the laboratory are given, in addition to directions for his or her program within the oil box.
