  • A novel EOR surfactant

    The Chemical Engineer , 13th May 2019

    Scientists at Swansea University, UK have developed a novel, ‘green’ surfactant which improves oil recovery by 72%. The surfactant is quick and simple to synthesise and could provide a cheaper, greener alternative to common EOR surfactants.

  • A New Class of Low Surface Energy Anionic Surfactant for Enhanced Oil Recovery

    ACS Publications , 10th Apr 2019

    A new type of green low surface energy surfactant (LSES) that is stable in the harsh conditions of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) has been reported. This efficient surfactant examined by scientists at Swansea University is shown to improve the oil recovery by 72% in both low and high brine solutions, a remarkable result for only a single chain surfactant flooding, compared to 45% recovery in the presence of other surfactants alone.

  • Scientists develop a well-good way to extract oil

    Science & Technology Facilities Council , 3rd Apr 2019

    The surfactant developed by the team from Swansea University is hydrocarbon-based, which they hope has the potential to be a ‘green’ replacement. To find out, the team, led by Dr Shirin Alexander and Professor Andrew R Barron, turned to the investigative powers of the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.

  • Scientists develop a well-good way to extract oil

    ISIS Neutron and Muon Science , 2nd Apr 2019

    Scientists from Swansea University have used ISIS Neutron and Muon Source to investigate a new and, potentially, ‘greener’ way to extract oil that might otherwise remain trapped deep within rocks.
