Evaluation of the Effect of Microbial Combination Flooding

Yang ZHAO, Jingchun WU, Jingchun WU, Fang SHI, Fang SHI


The microbial combination flooding is a method of microbial enhanced oil recovery, which use the composite system produced by biopolymers and bio-surfactants to drive oil. In this paper, we chose B2/DJ composite system through the stability test, and study the experimental of indoor flooding with the B2/DJ composite, it drew a conclusion that the oil recovery was improved obviously after water flooding. The oil recovery was enhanced 13%.
