chemicalsChemicals are used during the life cycle of a well for various purposes. Surfactants are such chemicals which also have the capability to alter the properties of the reservoir rock as well as form foams that are capable of controlling mobility of in-situ fluids. We believe understanding the complex chemical processes and changes at the rock-fluid and fluid-fluid interfaces is essential in devising better chemical strategies for improving oil recovery. This wing of our research focus on tapping the potential of these chemicals to improve oil recovery from conventional and unconventional formations with the view of formulating cheaper and better performing stimulation techniques.
