Abstract: 

THE RECOVERY FACTOR CAN BE INCREASED BY REDUCTION IN INTERFACIAL TENSION (IFT) DUE TO REDUCING OF CAPILLARY PRESSURE. A RESIDUAL OIL SATURATION (S OR) REMAINS IN ROCK WHICH HAS BEEN WATER FLOODED BECAUSE, UNDER USUAL RESERVOIR CONDITION, THE DRIVING FORCE WHICH CAN BE GENERATED IS NOT ENOUGH TO PUSH OUT OIL TRAPPED BY CAPILLARY FORCES. SINCE THESE CAPILLARY FORCES CAN BE REDUCED BY REDUCING THE IFT A FREQUENTLY STUDIED METHOD OF INCREASING OIL RECOVERY HAS BEEN THE USE OF SURFACTANTS TO REDUCE THE WATER-OIL INTERFACIAL TENSION.
IN THIS STUDY THE PURPOSE IS TO DEFINE HOW IFT REDUCTION CAN LEAD TO RECOVERY FACTOR IMPROVEMENT BY STUDYING OF THE MIRI OIL FIELD (NORTHERN SARAWAK, MALAYSIA). DIFFERENT IFTS ARE BASED ON MEASURED VALUES WHICH ACHIEVED BY EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH AND LED TO DIFFERENT RECOVERY FACTORS.
