Chemical EOR process visualization using NOA81 micromodels
The main goal for all enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes is to gain additional oil recovery after, or in some cases along primary and secondary recovery methods. For EOR processes that use immiscible displacement to increase oil recovery, the overall displacement efficiency can be increased by improving the mobility ratio or by increasing the capillary number. Core flooding is the traditional method to study the parameters above. However, microfluidic micromodels are causing huge interest from industry. In this study, we developed procedures to fabricate microfluidic porous media micromodels ...
