There is a widespread need to utilise current oil reservoirs more efficiently. Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods are being used to extract more oil from reservoirs that are often left with substantial amounts of oil trapped in the porous rock after primary and secondary recovery. CO2-based miscible flooding is attracting significant attention as a potential EOR method.

Presenter - Prof. Sandro da Rocha
Sandro da Rocha is an associate professor in Pharmaceutics and Chemical & Life Science Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University. He is also serving as Director for Pharmaceutical Engineering – Pharmacy.
He has done extensive work in the area of colloids and interfaces at high pressures. This includes pioneering work related to the understanding of surfactants at water-high pressure CO2 interfaces. Tension and contact angle measurements and the study of emulsions and microemulsions under pressure form an integral part of this work – both experimental and computational.
