- ... The production of water during crude oil extraction may result in the formation of stable water-in-oil emulsions. Such emulsions are problematic for a variety of reasons; for example, they increase the fluid viscosity and hence the pumping costs. Previously, Ling; [NMR Studies of the Effect of CO₂ on Oilfield Emulsion Stability. Energy Fuels2016, 307, 5555–5562] have shown that treating these wate ...
