This two-hour online course provides the basics of Carbon Dioxide n l Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). It introduces the physics, fundamental engineering aspects of applications, and the economics basis on which it is implemented. Applicable regulations are discussed. Examples of projects, potential for future production, ongoing R & D, and what’s next for the process are discussed.
The US is facing challenges: reducing dependence on foreign energy sources and reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. Coupled with these two problems carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery has gained much attention. There are two choices for reducing emissions of CO2: using the CO2 for EOR or sequestering it. Sales of sequestered CO2 captured from emissions help defray some of the costs for implementing and operating carbon capture. Also, using the CO2 reduces the costs of sequestering and protects the environment from greenhouse gases.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
