Title: Use of high ethoxylate low carbon atom amines for simultaneous removal of sulfonate surfactants and water from recovered crude oil

Abstract

This invention relates to secondary or tertiary recovery processes for the recovery of oil from subterranean oil-bearing reservoirs. More particularly, this invention relates to an improved method for the recovery of petroleum from underground reservoirs, which petroleum contains sulfonate surfactants and water and for a method of removing said sulfonate surfactants and water from petroleum produced from said recovery processes.
