Nanoparticle-Stabilized Emulsions for Applications in Enhanced Oil Recovery. Paper SPE/DOE 129885, presented at SPE Improved Oil Recovery Symposium. Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, 24–28 April. Paper SPE/DOE 129885, presented at SPE Improved Oil Recovery Symposium.. We investigated the use of silica nanoparticle-stabilized emulsions to displace oil in porous media. A low-quality (20%) n-decane-in-water emulsion was injected into a glass-bead pack containing mineral oil under residual oil saturation conditions.

Residual oil recovery coreflood experiments were conducted (using Boise Sandstone cores) with nanoparticle-stabilized pentane-in-water emulsions as injectant and light mineral oil as residual oil. A recovery of up to 82% residual oil was observed for these experiments. By continuously measuring the pressure drop across the core, a possible mechanism for enhanced oil recovery is proposed. Abstract: Nanoparticles are a promising alternative to surfactants to stabilize emulsions or foams in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes due to their effectiveness in very harsh environments found in many of the oilfields around the world.
In this paper, we evaluate nanoparticle-stabilized CO2 foam stability and effectiveness in enhanced oil recovery at the pore and micromodel scales. The nanoparticle-stabilized CO2 gas-in-brine foams maintain excellent stability within microconfined media and continue to be stable after 10 days, as compared to less than 1 day for surfactant foam..

Abstract. The purpose of this project was to develop nanoparticle-stabilized CO₂ foam for CO₂ -EOR application, in which nanoparticles instead of surfactants are used for stabilizing CO₂ foam to improve the CO₂ sweep efficiency and increase oil recovery.. The residual oil recovery after waterflooding can be greatly improved by nanoparticle-surfactant stabilized emulsion flooding. • There is an optimum economic injected volume of the emulsion at which the highest tertiary oil recovery can be obtained.. Oil recovery experiments showed that nanoparticle-stabilized oil-in-water emulsion increased the recovery of oil compared to a waterflood for cores with immobile and mobile oil.

Technical Paper The Potential Applications in Heavy Oil
Pickering emulsions stabilized using surfactant and colloidal particles such as nanoparticles are gaining wider recognition in petroleum industry due to their high strength, self-standing capability and stabilized flow behavior. Polyacrylamide (PAM) is a water soluble polymer and is widely used in several oilfield applications such as vis-cosity enhancer, drilling fluid design and in EOR.
Application of nanotechnology in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) has been increasing in recent years. After secondary flooding, more than 60% of the original oil in place (OOIP) remains in the reservoir due to trapping of oil in the reservoir rock pores..
This study reports a Pickering emulsion flooding system, in which the oil–water interface is structurally stabilized by a complex colloidal layer consisting of silica nanoparticles, dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB), and poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid-co-maleic acid) sodium salt (PSS-co-MA).. The ability of nanoparticles to stabilize oil/water emulsions provides many interesting opportunities for the petroleum industry. Emulsions can be used as a displacing fluid for enhanced oil recovery to improve sweep efficiencies..
