Effect of Water Salinity and pH on the Wettability of a Model Substrate

Fogden, Andrew


While the wettability of oil reservoirs has been the focus of many studies, little is known as to whether, and to what extent, the wettability evolves during oil recovery by waterflooding. To this end, a model silicate substrate, namely glass, was treated by oil drainage of the surrounding salt solution and aging (representing the initial state), followed by oil displacement by a second salt solution (flooded state). The two states were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy of the oil...[Show more]
