A CORRELATION OF NON IONIC SURFACTANT CONCENTRATION, WATER SALINITY, AND OIL RECOVERY IN SANDSTONE IMBIBITIONS

Andry Prima, Sugiatmo Kasmungin

Abstract


The non ionic surfactant concentration is observed in a laboratorial
experiment in order to find its relations to the oil recovery. The integral part to
this study is the effect of water salinity on sandstone, which is used as core
sample. In general, this experiment has proved the injection of non-ionic
surfactant concentration into the sandstone-core sample throughout the
imbibitions linearly correlates to the oil recovery. Simultaneously, the study
further concludes that the Nonionic Surfactant Concentration works
effectively in low saline oil formation.
