Summary:

Recoverable oil is trapped after secondary recovery processes due to capillary forces, inapt mobility ratio & heterogeneity in the reservoir. To optimize the recovery of oil, improved oil recovery (IOR) techniques must be applied, which are not always so economical. Use of Aluminum oxide Nanoparticle (Al2O3 NP) technology for IOR is a recent innovation that is in short supply in literature as Al2O3 NP reduces interfacial tension between oil & water and aid oil mobilization. Laboratory experiments were carried out using a Hele-shaw cell, 2-D glass cell with glass beads as the porous media to investigate the flow and heavy oil recovery by Nanoparticles injection. The experimental work was in six folds with six slugs labeled A, B, C, D, E and F respectively.
