The Immens project (Improving microbial selective plugging technology through experimentally based modelling and simulation) aims at developing a reliable upscaled model for Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovering. The goal is a fully coupled model for multicomponent transport and multiphase flow in porous media. The funding of this collaboration with UniResearch from the Research Council of Norway, Petromaks II and GOE A.G. extends from 2016 to 2020.
