Rheological Properties of Polymer Solutions Used for Tertiary Oil Recovery

  • Werner Lange
  • Günther Rehage


Our contribution deals with the rheological properties of polymer solutions used for polymer flooding, one method of tertiary oil recovery. The situation in most oil fields in the world is the following: only 20–40% of the oil in place has been yet drawn out. By means of tertiary oil recovery an additional oil winning of 8–16% of oil in place is expected.
