Aiming to obtain a type of oil displacement with both surface activity and polymer performances, this paper, basing on mixing initiators at low temperatures, proposed a type of anion-nonionic surface-active polymer oil displacement agent (ANSP-1) by introducing polymerizable anion-nonionic surfmer (ANS-1), acrylamide (AM) and acrylic acid (AA). Structure of ANSP-1 was measured by FTIR. Laboratory studies show that: ANS-1 graft copolymerization occurs with AM, it avoids chromatographic separation, and it has better performances on molecular properties, such as tackifying performance, salt resistance, shear resistance and thermal stability. Oil-water interfacial tension can reach 1×10-1 mN/m. Field application shows that average recovery ratio of the test wells which used ANSP-1 is 11%, which is 6.2% higher than the whole area.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
