... components. DME can enhance the heavy component (C 17+ ) mobilization through interfacial tension (IFT) reduction and wettability alteration. Combing scCO 2 and DME can effectively improve the mobilization of both light and heavy components of crude oil, and thus achieve a better ultimate oil recovery rate...
