Dr. Ohenhen, Ikponmwosa

Discipline: Engineering
Optimisation of Thermal Recovery Process for Nigeria Bitumen
Contribution to knowledge:
The work studied the fluid composition of Nigerian bitumen and created a numerical model for thermal recovery of Bitumen from Nigeria tar sand. Rock and fluid properties for some Nigeria tar sand locations has also been catalogued. The research also discovered that location is a critical parameter that affects Thermal Improved Oil Recovery (TIOR) for Nigerian bitumen.
Supervisors:
Dr. Ohenhen Ikponmwosa, was jointly supervised by Prof. Olalekan A. Olafuyi (Department of Petroleum Engineering, University of Benin, Nigeria) & Dr. Sunday S. Ikiensikimama (Department of Gas Engineering, University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria).
