Chemical Methods, a new release in the Enhanced Oil Recovery series, helps engineers focus on the latest developments in one fast-growing area. Different techniques are described in addition to the latest technologies in data mining and hybrid processes. Beginning with an introduction to chemical concepts and polymer flooding, the book then focuses on more complex content, guiding readers into newer topics involving smart water injection and ionic liquids for EOR. Supported field case studies illustrate a bridge between research and practical application, thus making the book useful for academics and practicing engineers.
This series delivers a multi-volume approach that addresses the latest research on various types of EOR. Supported by a full spectrum of contributors, this book gives petroleum engineers and researchers the latest developments and field applications to drive innovation for the future of energy.
- Presents the latest research and practical applications specific to chemical enhanced oil recovery methods
- Helps users understand new research on available technology, including chemical flooding specific to unconventional reservoirs and hybrid chemical options
- Includes additional methods, such as data mining applications and economic and environmental considerations
Petroleum engineers; petroleum researchers; enhanced oil recovery researchers; reservoir engineers; researchers understanding unconventional reservoirs
