Foam flooding in porous media is of increasing interest due to its numerous applications such as enhanced oil recovery, aquifer remediation, and hydraulic fracturing. However, the mechanisms of oil-foam interactions have yet to be fully understood at the pore level. Here, we present three characteristic zones identified in experiments involving the(More)
We present the results of an experimental investigation of the effect of gas type and composition on foam transport in porous media. Steady-state foam strengths with respect to three cases of distinct gases and two cases containing binary mixtures of these gases were compared. The effects of gas solubility, the stability of lamellae, and the gas diffusion(More)
This study presents experiment and surface complexation modeling (SCM) of synthetic calcite zeta potential in brine with mixed potential determining ions (PDI) under various CO2 partial pressures. Such SCM, based on systematic zeta potential measurement in mixed brines (Mg2+, SO42-, Ca2+ and CO32-), is currently not available in the literature and is(More)
