Enhanced oil recovery is a traditional research area for reservoir development in conventional reservoirs. Currently, the revolution of unconventional oil and gas exploration and production bring lots of opportunities for research in enhancing oil recovery in these tight formations, such as shales.
Recent advances in new chemicals and formulations (especially nanomaterials and nanofluids), novel analytical methods and devices such as micro-fluidics and nano-fluidics, new modeling techniques for conventional and unconventional oil recovery process (such as population balance modeling, complexation modeling of low salinity water flooding, embedded finite element method for hydraulic fracturing) attracted increased attention. These advances have the potential to address the most challenging issues that existed in the development process of the conventional and unconventional reservoir.
This special issue will focus on reporting the advances in all aspects of novel chemicals (synthesis, formula optimization), devices fabrication, analytical methods development, and mathematical modeling and simulation techniques for the research in conventional and unconventional oil and gas development area. These advances will help foster the understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of developing oil and gas in conventional and unconventional more efficiently.
Other topics such as the experimental and modeling work on the development of geothermal resources, heavy and viscous oil, gas hydrate, carbon dioxide capture and utilization, asphaltene, etc., are also welcomed for publication in this special issue.

Aims and Scope:

  1. Novel chemicals (polymers, surfactant, nanomaterials, and their hybrids)
  2. Microfluidics and nanofluidics
  3. Novel analytical methods such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance(NMR) for unconventional reservoirs
  4. New oil and gas development process especially for unconventional reservoirs
  5. New mechanisms of interfacial and fluid transport phenomenon
  6. New models and algorisms for reservoir simulation
