255. Evaluation of a novel mechanistic approach to predict transport of water and ions through shale

Nima Hamidian Shoormasti; Seyyed Alireza Tabatabaei-Nezhad; seyyedalireza Tabatabaei-Nezhad

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 02 September 2021

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.226919.1546

Abstract
  Prediction of transport parameters is an important issue in shale formations. A unique and novel method to address this subject is the Revil model (Revil et al. 2011) which has been updated here for multivalent salts. The updated model for water and ion transport through shale has been evaluated against ...  Read More

256. Relation between asphaltene adsorption on the nanoparticles surface and asphaltene precipitation inhibition during real crude oil natural depletion tests

Yaser Ahmadi

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 05 September 2021

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.291675.1600

Abstract
  Using nanoparticles for adsorbing asphaltene was known as one of efficient methods among researchers for upgrading of real oil samples in comparison to other expensive mechanical treatments or even solvents (such as n-pentane and n-heptane) and surfactants. In this study, Nickel zeolite oxide nanoparticles ...  Read More
