W-EOR

understand at the nanometer scale what control wettability of carbonate rocks and use this knowledge to increase the oil yield gained from water enhanced oil recovery

Water Enhanced Oil Recovery is about characterising the fluid-mineral interface at the pore level in carbonate rocks, using our pool of surface analytical techniques coupled with simulation. The goal is to understand at the nanometer scale what control wettability of the mineral, by investigating real rocks samples and model system. This project is a collaboration with Mærsk Oil Qatar.
