This paper addresses the mechanical stability of the biopolymer Schizophyllan for stressing conditions commonly occurring throughout an EOR process. Differences between laboratory and field testing and the importance of a realistic test design for a successful field application are highlighted. Analytical methods, challenges and learnings encountered during method development are also presented.
