Foam rheology in porous media

For processes involving gas injection, such as enhanced oil recovery (EOR a ) and CO 2 storage operations, the use of foam makes it easier to control gas mobility . Improving these processes requires

Phase equilibria in confined media

In many geological reservoirs, pore size distribution is highly heterogeneous (from 2 to 50 nm). While the molecular size of the confined fluids is between 0.5 and 10 nm, their interaction forces with

Adsorption, a key factor for geological storage

Low permeability geological layers, already known within the context of oil exploration, are once again becoming a focus of interest for energy (compressed air), gas (CO 2 , H 2 , CH 4 ) and waste

Processes are converting to microfluidics

The diversification of resources (atypical oil feeds or bio-based feeds) is leading to the development of new conversion processes a or to the upgrading of flexibility for existing ones. These
