Today carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of displacing fluids that is used in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) process. However the low viscosity of CO2 causes it to finger towards the production well and bypassed large amounts of oil. Because of during flooding of CO2 its mobility is very less than crude oil into reservoir that causes to leave a great amount of oil, so a reduction in CO2 mobility would be inclined to mitigate. We in this review study state that could increase CO2 viscosity with dissolving it into polymer solution, that it can delay breakthrough time of CO2 during EOR process. In addition with making of such solution can decrease oil viscosity during flooding process into reservoir simultaneously. In actual with mixing of CO2 gas at high pressure into Partial Hydrolyzed Polyacrylamide solution (HPAM) as an anionic polymer can increase the viscosity of CO2 with a concentration optimum of polymer and improve the sweep efficiency of oil during EOR process using this method.
