Abstract
  Increasing demand of hydrocarbons has prompted new strategies of recovery by application of nanoparticle-surfactant flooding in Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR). Some mechanisms involved in improving oil mobility are alteration of rock wettability and reduction in interfacial tension between the ...  Read More
