Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is currently the novel method to recover the remaining crude oil in the major oil field around the world. Enhanced oil recovery can be classified into 2 major component; chemical and thermal oil recoveries. The phenomenon of magnetic nanoparticles recently attracts the researcher because of the ability of nanoparticles to react with electromagnetic waves to disturb the oil in the reservoir. Despite the usage of many magnetic nanoparticles such as cobalt ferrite, another material like yttrium iron garnet is never been tested its performance. Yttrium iron garnet (YIG) is thermally stable in high temperature and it is the main reason why it is widely use in the microwave appliances. This is a good parameter for oil with high viscosities and instead of injecting hot water; the YIG will be injected as the nano fluid to recover the oil. Thus, this project is to investigate the potential of Yttrium iron garnet as magnetic nanoparticles for enhanced oil recovery using electromagnetic waves. The oil recovery of yttrium iron garnet (YIG) magnetic nanoparticles with Electromagnetic waves are 17.77% of the Original Oil in Place (OOIP) and the recovery of 43.64% of the remaining oil in the core.
