3. A Numerical Simulation Study on the Kinetics of Asphaltene Particle Flocculation in a Two-dimensional Shear Flow

Hadi Bagherzadeh; Zahra Mansourpour; Bahram Dabir

Volume 8, Issue 2 , Spring 2019, , Pages 53-72

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2018.142463.1468

Abstract
  In the current study, the kinetics of asphaltene particle flocculation is investigated under a shear flow through numerical simulation. The discrete element method (DEM) is coupled with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to model the agglomeration and fragmentation processes. In addition, a coalescence ...  Read More

4. An Experimental Study of Acid Diversion by Using Gelled Acid Systems Based on Viscoelastic Surfactants: A Case Study on One of Iran Southwest Oilfields

Abdorrahman Mehri Ghahfarrokhi; Ezzatollah Kazemzadeh; Hassan Shokrollahzadeh Behbahani; Gholam Abbas Safian

Volume 8, Issue 1 , Winter 2019, , Pages 32-46

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2018.139168.1464

Abstract
  In matrix acidizing operations, the main goal is increasing permeability. For production engineers, it is desirable that acid could be injected into whole [M.N.1] [amehri.gh2] pay zone. Sometimes, this pay zone has a long height and various sub-layers which have different permeability values. ...  Read More

5. Application of Nanoparticles for Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery

Alimorad Rashidi; Alireza Solaimany Nazar; Hamideh Radnia

Volume 7, Issue 1 , Winter 2018, , Pages 1-19

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2018.98264.1410

Abstract
  In this paper, the potentials of using particles, especially nanoparticles, in enhanced oil recovery is investigated. The effect of different nanoparticles on wettability alteration, which is an important method to increase oil recovery from oil-wet reservoirs, is reviewed. The effect of different kinds ...  Read More
