• CO2 mobility reduction using foam stabilized by CO2- and water-soluble surfactants 

      Føyen, Tore Lyngås; Alcorn, Zachary Paul; Fernø, Martin; Barrabino, Albert; Holt, Torleif (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Foam can reduce CO2 mobility to improve the sweep efficiency during injection into subsurface geological formations for CO2 storage and enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 foams are thermodynamically unstable, so they must ...
    • An Evaluation of Graphene Oxides as Possible Foam Stabilizing Agents for CO2 Based Enhanced Oil Recovery 

      Barrabino, Albert; Holt, Torleif; Lindeberg, Erik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
      Graphene oxide, nanographene oxide and partially reduced graphene oxide have been studied as possible foam stabilizing agents for CO2 based enhanced oil recovery. Graphene oxide was able to stabilize CO2/synthetic sea water ...
    • Increased CO2 storage capacity using CO2 -foam 

      Føyen, Tore Lyngås; Brattekås, Bergit; Fernø, Martin; Barrabino, Albert; Holt, Torleif (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Reduction of the CO2 mobility is beneficial during subsurface sequestration of anthropogenic CO2 in saline aquifers and hydrocarbon reservoirs by mitigating flow instabilities leading to early gas breakthrough and poor ...
