A composition of matter wherein amino resins such as melamine formaldehyde ("MF") resins modify biopolymers thereby forming gels with transitional metal ions useful for profile control where said polymers have amine, amide, hydroxyl and thiol functionalities. Said gels are thermally stable, brine tolerant and rehealable. Said resin modified biopolymers can be used in their liquid or ungelled state as a mobility control agent in a reservoir during the removal of hydrocarbonaceous fluids therefrom.
