In the petroleum industry, Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) technology has been developed to obtain increased oil recovery from reservoirs. One of the EOR methods is chemical EOR using a surfactant known as the Surfactant Flooding method. Surfactants have the ability to reduce the interfacial tension between oil and water in the rock matrix so that residual oil that has not been produced in the primary recovery or water flooding stages can be produced. There are several parameters that affect the performance of surfactants, among which will be the subject of discussion in this literature review, namely the middle phase emulsion obtained from the phase behavior test and the results from the interfacial tension (IFT) test. From this literature review, a correlation between the middle phase emulsion and the results of the interfacial tension (IFT) will be obtained. Based on the literature review, The method used in IFT using the spinning drop method. And the method used in the phase behavior test is 2 mL of surfactant solution with a certain concentration mixed with 2 mL of crude oil which is inserted into a scaled test tube. Then the surfactant and crude oil solution in the test tube was shaken slowly. During the test, the test tube was placed in an oven at a temperature of 60o C for 21 days. Based on the literature review, it was found that the greater the percentage of the middle phase emulsion, the greater the IFT results obtained.
