Polymer Rheology and Evaluation

Polymer is an essential part of a chemical EOR design. It can be used on its own on heavy oil or in combination with Surfactant, Alkali or Ammonia on lighter crudes. In order to get the right design for polymer several tests need to be done:

Polymer Rheology (viscosity vs concentration)

Polymer adsorption

Polymer stability over time and temperature

Polymer compatibility with formation\injection water, surfactant and other chemicals

PanTerra’s lab is specialized in the design of Polymer rheology and EOR recipes. The chemical design project is taken through a series of set laboratory work-flows and experiments. These experiments address the above parameters and together with the client PanTerra formulates the optimal polymer and chemical EOR recipe.
