It appears the researchers at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) have developed a method that yields more heavy oil than traditional methods. The on-going problem with expensive unsuccessful chemical flooding in heavy oil reservoirs is an inefficient sweep efficiency to improve heavy oil mobility in the reservoir. It is an interesting approach to contain an acid component generated by a chemical reaction to improve the swept region and sweep efficiency. The key issues to improve are viscosity reduction, a reduction of interfacial tension, emulsification of the oil, and wettability alteration that maximizes oil mobility for more efficient and increased heavy oil recovery.
