Journal overview

The international journal of Petroleum Science and Technology publishes original, high-quality peer-reviewed research and review articles that explore:

  • The fundamental science of fluid-fluid and rock-fluids interactions and multi-phase interfacial and transport phenomena through porous media related to advanced petroleum recovery processes,
  • The application of novel concepts and processes for enhancing recovery of subsurface energy resources in a carbon-sensitive manner,
  • Case studies of scaling up the laboratory research findings to field pilots and field-wide applications.
  • Other salient technological challenges facing the petroleum industry.

We are especially keen to receive contributions from authors whose research looks at the following general areas:

  • Fluid-fluid interactions (solubility, miscibility, phase behavior) of hydrocarbons in the presence of surfactants, nanofluids, CO2 and other agents that could enhance petroleum recovery from both conventional and unconventional (shale-oil, heavy-oil, and bitumen) resources
  • Rock-fluids interactions of wettability, spreading adhesion and relative permeability characteristics that influence the distribution and multi-phase flow of hydrocarbons in porous subsurface media
  • Enhanced oil recovery by chemical, gas and heat injection processes
  • Original research and review articles that address the environmental aspects of petroleum recovery and production
  • Near wellbore processes, coupling between reservoir and wellbore transport processes, management techniques for good well bore performance
  • Poroelasticity and hydraulic fracturing studies on reservoir scale that explore the impact of such mechanism on Petroleum Science and Technology
  • Experimental research as well as theoretical and multiscale modeling work with substantial verification of results
