The Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage combines the CO2 technology for Enhanced Oil Recovery which was developed to increase the oil recovery factor with the methodologies developed to reduce the Carbon emissions to get to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 for combating global warming
Typically, the Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage comprises:

First, the CO2 enhanced oil recovery technology (CO2-EOR) developed from core flood experiments and compositional simulations that demonstrated that CO2 injection at specific pressure and temperature in oil reservoirs can developed a miscible displacement front removing the residual oil from the porous media and displacing oil toward the producer wells.

These EOR process has been applied in in the Permian Basin of West Texas and other areas of the United States, and Canada. Although there are differences in the CO2-EOR with the Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) understanding both objectives can lead to practical end economics applications in the E&P industry.

Last, the Geological Sequestration of CO2 is an emerging technology being investigated and applied to get to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, over the last few years this technology has developed rapidly. Currently there are ongoing seismic studies to estimate the suitability of depleted reservoirs as repositories of CO2.


As this applications grows around the world, our experienced CO2 EOR engineering and geomechanics consultants are some of the most qualified and experienced professionals available in the industry to help our clients in their CCUS CO2 geo-sequestration projects.
