The Introduction of the Special Issue

Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is the technique or process where the physicochemical (physical and chemical) properties of the rock are changed to enhance the recovery of hydrocarbon. The properties of the reservoir fluid system which are affected by EOR process are chemical, biochemical, density, miscibility, interfacial tension (IFT)/surface tension (ST), viscosity and thermal. EOR often is called tertiary recovery if it is performed after waterflooding.Low-Salinity -Surfactant Flooding—A Multimechanistic Enhanced-Oil-Recovery Method.
