Hydrolyzed polyacrylamide (HPA) are the most commonly used polymers for enhancing oil recovery. A systematic laboratory study of the various mechanisms possibly acting on the properties of flexible HPA solutions flowing through porous media was performed in order to interpret at a molecular level such phenomena as dilatant behavior, hydrodynamic retention and the variations of both mobility and permeability reductions as a function of pore size and adsorption properties. 29 refs.
