Russian Rusnano and British BP will use nanotechnologies to increase oil production efficiency in Russia. They will implement a project called “Brightwater” which involves the use of polymer nanoparticles to increase pressure in oil layers and thereby increase extraction yields (see Rianovosti article here).
