Abstract: 

In recent years, micromodels have been used to investigate and understand the mechanisms of oil recovery. Micromodels provide the opportunity to observe fluid flow and investigate displacement efficiency on the pore scale. In this work, the ability of Pseudomonas aeruginosa HATH to grow and produce rhamnolipid biosur-factant on sunflower as a carbon source is shown. The produced rhamnolipid can reduce the surface tension from 70 mNm/ to 28 mN/m and interfacial tension from 36 mN/m to 4 mN/m at the CMC concentration. These characteristics show that the produced rhamnolipid has a great potential for the oil recovery, especially in microbial enhanced oil recovery. Furthermore, the effect of produced rhamnolipid on enhanced oil recovery has been studied using a micromodel. The results of the experiments show that after rhamnolipid flooding at the CMC concentration (120 mg/l), about 5% of crude oil is recovered from a micromodel.
