Recent Developments on Surfactants for Enhanced Oil Recovery Neueste Entwicklungen bei Tensiden für die Enhanced Oil Recovery
Journal article, 2021

This review discusses surfactants used for chemical flooding, including surfactant-polymer flooding and alkali-surfactant-polymer flooding. The review, unlike most previous reviews in the field, has a surfactant focus, not a focus on the flooding process. It deals with recent results, mainly from 2010 and onward. Older literature is referred to when needed in order to put more recent findings into a perspective.
