Dynamic Contact Angle Measurements
Keywords:Surface Tension, Wettability
One of the major problems arising in the Oil Industry is those associated with oil extraction. The ideal conditions on the rock surface should be water wet conditions, to facilitate the easy extraction of oil. Contact angle measurements are key to determine surface tension between solids and various fluids. If the rock wettability is oil wet, the oil company may need to change the rock wettability. We will determine wettability (water wet or oil wet), analyze how the effect of different brine concentrations on wettability and contact angle measurements using the Dynamic Contact Angle Analyzer (DCA 315).
