The Potential of ZnO Nanoparticles to Reduce Water Consuming in Iranian Heavy Oil Reservoir

Masoumeh Tajmiri; Mohammad Reza Ehsani

Volume 1, Issue 2 , November 2016, Pages 84-90


  Water is critically important, because its supply is under stress. In oil fields, the ratio-of-water-to-oil (WCUT%) can be 95% or higher. Managing this produced water is a great challenge whereas the best opportunity to reduce costs, improve profitability and preserve the natural environment. The oil ...  Read More
