The potential of low-salinity (LS) water injection as an oil recovery technique has been the source of much recent debate within the petroleum industry. Evidence from both laboratory and field-level studies has indicated significant benefits compared to conventional high-salinity (HS) waterflooding, but many conflicting results have also been reported and, to date, the underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. In this paper, we aim to address this uncertainty by developing a novel, steady… CONTINUE READING
