Recently, utilization of surfactant for EOR purposes in carbonate petroleum reservoirs has received the attention of many researchers. Surfactants generally appear to improve oil production through wettability alteration and reduction of interfacial tension (IFT) between oil and water phases. Loss of surfactant due to adsorption process is considered as an unfavorable phenomenon in surfactant flooding while conducting an EOR operation. In this study, a new plant-derived surfactant, called Zyziphus Spina Christi (ZSC), with various magnitudes of salinity is employed. The adsorption behavior of this surfactant is investigated using the conductivity approach to explore the impacts of salt concentration on adsorption rate through batch tests. Core flooding tests are also conducted to study the effects of surfactant/salinity on recovery factor and relative permeability. Employing the kinetics and isotherm models, MgCl2 and KCl exhibit the greatest and lowest influence on the adsorption phenomenon, respectively. It is also concluded that the pseudo-second order kinetics and Freundlich isotherm model can satisfactorily describe the adsorption behavior of the surfactant onto carbonates in the presence of salt for the kinetics and equilibrium tests conditions, respectively. According to the production history, it is found that increasing surfactant concentration leads to a considerable increase in oil relative permeability and consequently improvement of oil recovery.

In-depth understanding of interactions between crude oil and CO2 provides insight into the CO2-based enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process design and simulation. When CO2 contacts crude oil, the dissolution process takes place. This phenomenon results in the oil swelling, which depends on the temperature, pressure, and composition of the oil. The residual oil saturation in a CO2-based EOR process is inversely proportional to the oil swelling factor. Hence, it is important to estimate this influential parameter with high precision. The current study suggests the predictive model based on the least-squares support vector machine (LS-SVM) to calculate the CO2–oil swelling factor. A genetic algorithm is used to optimize hyperparameters (γ and σ2) of the LS-SVM model. This model showed a high coefficient of determination (R2 = 0.9953) and a low value for the mean-squared error (MSE = 0.0003) based on the available experimental data while estimating the CO2–oil swelling factor. It was found that LS-SVM is a straightforward and accurate method to determine the CO2–oil swelling factor with negligible uncertainty. This method can be incorporated in commercial reservoir simulators to include the effect of the CO2–oil swelling factor when adequate experimental data are not available.
