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

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
