State of the art on enhanced oil recovery with CO2 sequestration for low carbon industry

A Atia, K Mohammedi


Abstract: The growing concerns over the global warming due to the
increase in the global concentration of greenhouse gases in the
atmosphere has increased the interest in examining various
techniques to reduce the emission of these gases and for low carbon
dioxide industry. A main component of greenhouse gases is carbon
dioxide (CO2). A promising long term solution for mitigating global
heating is to inject CO2 into geological formations; either for CO2
sequestration or enhanced oil recovery, or a combination between
the two solutions. A suitable choice of geological formations for CO2
injection includes petroleum and gas reservoirs, water formation leg
of the oil/gas reservoir or separate deep saline aquifers, deep-sea
sediments and coal beds. This study aims to setup a state of the art on
this problem.
