Nanoferrofluids for Enhanced Oil Recovery

Technology Area: Conventional Energy

Commercial Maturity: Concept

Abstract: A quaternary enhanced oil recovery (EOR) method based on functionalized nanoferrofluids to reduce oil density and/or interfacial tension (IFT) between crude oil and reservoir water, in order to overcome capillary forces, allowing more oil extraction through the reservoir’s pore space, stimulating flow of hydrocarbons and increasing oil recovery factor.
