Evaluating the application of foam injection as an enhanced oil recovery in unconsolidated sand

In the Niger Delta, low oil recovery rates less than 30% results mainly due to oil production problems such as water coning, wax deposition and high gas/oil ratios. Meanwhile, the remaining oil becomes a good candidate for EOR methods such as CO2 injection, polymer and foam injection, in-situ combustion and steam injection. But as it stands, the practice of these known methods of enhanced oil recovery is scarce in the...
