A Rice University laboratory has provided proof that foam may be the right stuff to maximize enhanced oil recovery (EOR) increasing production. With over half of all the oil found so far still in the ground this may develop into very important news. The Rice team demonstrated that foam may be a superior means to […]

Rice University scientists describe in great detail and more precisely how bubbles form, evolve and act and in turn how they could be used to extract more oil from already discovered fields. In a new study led by Rice chemical and biomolecular engineer Sibani Lisa Biswal associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering with lead […]
