Enhanced Oil Recovery Investigation Using Algae Polymers
by Dong, Kanjicai, M.S., University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2016, 68; 10163342
Abstract (Summary)

After primary and secondary recovery there is still oil remaining in the reservoir, so tertiary recovery is introduced. This is also known as EOR. Enhanced oil recovery has been widely used with different types of polymers. Algae polymer is a new development with its own advantages and limitations. In order to discover the economic potential of algae polymer, this paper focuses on the recovery factor of algae polymer and compares it with other published results.
