Project Objectives

The objectives of the project are to: (1) test the extent to which the coupled method can improve both sweep efficiency and microscopic efficiency, thus improving overall oil production for small producers through extensive lab test and field pilot tests, (2) evaluate whether particle gel treatment and the coupled process can be used to control water production and improve oil recovery for the well candidates owned by small producers.
