Enhanced recovery

This paper discusses the field implementation of a downhole chemical methodology that has positively affected overall productivity for a mature Kuwait field.
The authors report that nanopolysilicon can be used effectively as a depressurizing, injection-increasing agent.
The authors develop and apply a laboratory protocol mimicking leakoff, shut-in, and flowback processes to evaluate the effects of fracturing-fluid additives on oil regained permeability.
