... repeat waterflooding experiments and two repeat flooding experiments per chemical injected (i.e. surfactant, polymer and SP) were run to test reproducibility of the results. All the tests were run at 0.6 ml/min and oil recovery factors were calculated and collected at each pore volume injected. The ANOVA...

.... Detailed dynamic simulation was used to quantify impacts of key uncertainties. We also found that gas production rate may be underestimated and oil recovery may be overestimated in typical field scale XHO models because they may not properly capture pressure and saturation changes in the near-well region...

The electromagnetic (EM) heating assisted oil recovery is one of them capable to be an alternative to conventional approaches where they become inacceptable. Physically speaking the radio-frequency (RF) heat generation results from so-called microwave effect i.e...
