In the United Kingdom, My Research work bothered on the "use of oil chemicals to enhance oil recovery in oil production.
Coming to ACE-CEFOR University of Port Harcourt has given me a different perspective on how to enhance oil recovery using local agricultural waste; okra, potash, etc.It's a whole new world here and there's so much to learn here.
