Abstract
  Oil recovery from oil wet carbonate rock is a big challenge in oil industry. In the present study, the influence of natural surfactant Hawthorn leaves extract (HLE) on oil recovery from carbonate rock is investigated. Two chemical surfactants include Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and Dodecyl tri methyl ...  Read More

Volume 4, Issue 4 , October 2015, , Pages 50-66

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2016.12479

Abstract
  Efforts to enhance oil recovery through wettability alteration by nanoparticles have been attracted in recent years. However, many basic questions have been ambiguous up until now. Nanoparticles penetrate into pore volume of porous media, stick on the core surface, and by creating homogeneous water-wet ...  Read More

A Laboratory Investigation into Wettability Alteration of Carbonate Rock by Surfactants: The Effect of Salinity, pH, and Surfactant Concentration

Mohsen Seid Mohammadi; Jamshid Moghadasi; Amin Kordestany

Volume 3, Issue 3 , July 2014, , Pages 1-10

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2014.6617

Abstract
  Wettability alteration is an important method for increasing oil recovery from oil-wet carbonate reservoirs. Chemical agents like surfactants are known as wettability modifiers in carbonate systems. Oil can be recovered from initially oil-wet carbonate reservoirs by wettability alteration from oil-wet ...  Read More

Mohsen Seid Mohammadi; Jamshid Moghadasi; Saeed Naseri

Volume 3, Issue 2 , April 2014, , Pages 18-26

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2014.6034

Abstract
  Wettability alteration is one of the most important methods for oil recovery from sandstone and carbonate reservoirs. The effects of salinity, pH, temperature, and chemicals such as surfactants and fatty acids on the alteration of the wettability were described in previous studies. In recent years, attention ...  Read More
