CO2-EOR has the potential to bring benefits for the UK offshore industry by improving recovery from depleted oil fields using CO2 captured from power plants and industry, says project leader Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage.

Other joint industry project partners include the Scottish government, Scottish Enterprise, 2Co Energy and Nexen Petroleum UK.

The project is focused on gaining a better understanding of the use of CO2 in EOR operations, with the aim of extending the life of North Sea oil fields using CO2 captured from large emitters — such as power plants and industrial facilities — and permanently storing the greenhouse gas in offshore oil reservoirs.
