The application of nanotechnology, particularly carbon nanotechnology, to the oilfield will be discussed. Many of these projects are being done in collaboration and sponsorship with oil and gas companies or related consortia. The specific topics, along with the partnering entities, that will be presented are: • corrosion inhibitors (Multi-Chem/Halliburton) • nano-enhanced rubber (NanoComposites Inc.) • downhole sensors (Advanced Energy Consortium = AEC ) • enhanced oil recovery at high temperature and salinity (AEC for nano-based work; seeking partner for non-nano-based advanced surfactants) • removal of asphaltenes (currently seeking a partner) • capture of radionuclides from water-NORMs (VSW and Argonide) • nanoparticles for extraction of bitumen from surface minable oil sands (BCE Oil Sands) • drilling fluid loss prevention and conductive oil-based muds (MI SWACO -Schlumberger) CO2 capture especially for sea-based platforms (Apache)
