Abstract
  Recently nanoparticles are used for improving the volume of oil and gas production and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) purposes. Based on our recent researches, using nanoparticles such as Silica and Calcium oxide has a good potential for changing mechanisms in the porous media such as interfacial tension ...  Read More

Abstract
  Several studies have shown that oil recovery significantly increased by low salinity water flooding (LSWF) in sandstones. However, mechanism of oil recovery improvement is still controversial. CO2 that develops buffer in presence of water is expected as a deterrent factor in LSWF efficiency based on ...  Read More
