Abstract Primary and secondary recovery of oil from oil reservoirs contributes approximately 30% of the total oil in place in most oil reservoirs. Since the current economic development is heavily dependent on fossil fuel, increasing the amount of oil recovery is given considerable attention. One of the most widely used methods for enhanced oil recovery is the application of various types of surfactants in order to reduce the oil-water interfacial tension. However, the surfactants being used… Expand
