Natural oil as an alternative raw material to petroleum fractions for various applications have been given much attention due to the fluctuation of global oil price and increasing environmental issues. Although surfactants derived from natural oil have been produced and used in various industries, natural oil derived surfactants have never been applied in EOR applications. This research looked into the possibility of applying natural oil derived surfactant in EOR applications. In this research, a nonionic surfactant has been synthesized successfully using natural oil having high oleate ester content with a simple two-step reaction: epoxidation followed by alkoxylation.
