Abstract: A report on the difficulty of retrieving oil which is trapped in sandstone and dolomite deposits. The use of suffactants is both expensive and unreliable. However, some research chemists at the University of Florida (John Meister, George Butler, Theodore Hogen Esch, and Huey Pledger) have developed the use of a polymer solution in conjunction with suffactants. When injected it thickens the water so that that water can push the oil out. Ultimately this process will aid in increasing the recovery of oil.
