Netherlands University Receives Research Contract From BP to Develop Nanotech for Oil Extraction

University’s research will contribute to BP’s Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Exploratory Research Program

The University of Twente’s Physics of Complex Fluids group, led by Professor Frieder Mugele, will conduct research on the interaction between oil, water and rocks on micro- and nanoscales. The research contract is for five years, with a total investment of €4 million from BP. BPs EOR program focuses on increasing the efficiency of oil production by a minimum of ten percent. The Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen (Germany) and the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) are also participating in the BP program.
