Abstract
  This research purpose is to investigate the effect of microwaves on the physical and chemical properties of heavy crude oil, in the presence of different minerals. In this regard, the physical and chemical changes of the oil and rock powder (sand and carbonate) mixture have been investigated by microwave ...  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
