Renewed 5-year contract with BP

BP and the PCF group signed a new contract to continue their successful collaboration on fundamental aspects of enhanced oil recovery for another 5 years. The work will continue to focus on the physical and chemical processes underlying the success of low salinity water flooding. In this new program our earlier experiments using Atomic Force Microscopy and macroscopic characterization tools will by vibrational (Raman) spectroscopy to allow for identification of chemical species at the lateral resolution of optical spectroscopy.
