Carbon Capture and Sequestration
What is Carbon Capture and Sequestration?
Carbon Capture and Sequestration is one of the most promising ways for reducing the buildup of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.
Even under the most optimistic scenarios for energy efficiency gains - along with the greater use of renewable energy technologies, and low carbon fuels and even no-carbon fuels, Carbon Capture and Sequestration will likely be an essential technology that is going to be deployed if the world is to stabilize atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gas emissions to acceptable levels - and more specifically, that carbon emissions, one of the most potent and climate changing of all greenhouse gas emissions, be kept below 350 ppm.
Since 1750, humans have emitted over 5 trillion pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Roughly half of this has ended up in the oceans where it is beginning to damage the coral reefs.
The other half is still in the atmosphere and causing global warming.
Each pound of CO2 takes up as much space as a 500 pound person.
The formula (which should be good for a year or two) is:
C(t) = 2.58 ×1012 + 1240×t, where t is seconds since the start of 2007.
C is metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
2205 x C gives pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
That comes to over 43 billion tons/year or over 86 trillion pounds/year.
Carbon dioxide (2) = 1 carbon atom with 2 oxygen atoms.
Carbon has relative weight 12 and Oxygen 16.
Therefore, it only takes 12 pounds of carbon to make 12+16+16 = 44 pounds of CO2.
What is Enhanced Oil Recovery?
Enhanced Oil Recovery or "EOR," also referred to as tertiary recovery or tertiary oil recovery, is the 3rd and final stage of oil recovery.
When an oil well is first completed and oil production begins, this is called the primary oil recovery stage. Anywhere from 5% to 15% of the "original oil in place" (OOIP) in the oil well's reservoir is recovered via "natural" reservoir drive, meaning natural forces drive or displace the oil into the production well's well bore.
The secondary oil recovery stage is where additional production measures are installed wherein anywhere from 10% to 30% of the original oil in place is recovered.
When the secondary oil recovery stage is complete - and ready for Enhanced Oil Recovery - 55% to 85% of the original oil in place remains.
The Department of Energy and many industry experts are on record in stating that Enhanced Oil Recovery has the potential to recover up to 60% of the remaining 55% to 85% - which means that Enhanced Oil Recovery has the potential to recover up 300 Billion barrels of oil. At $100/bbl, Enhanced Oil Recovery represents a $30 Trillion market opportunity (in the U.S.A.).

Two recent studies document the explosive growth in the
Enhanced Oil Recovery market:
1. Enhanced Oil Recovery Market Valued at $126.02 Billion/year (2012) with Gas EOR and CO2-EOR technologies leading the Growth for the EOR Industry
2. Global revenues from Enhanced Oil Recovery production now exceed one trillion dollars/year. According to a recent report from energy research publisher SBI, the market for worldwide Enhanced Oil Recovery production will reach $1.3 trillion/year by 2015.
The United States will recover more than 300 Billion Barrels of Oil through
Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) technologies according to the Department of Energy.
With oil priced at $100/bbl, EOR represents a $30 Trillion market in the USA
In the next 10-15 years, 50% of the oil produced in the USA
will be through Enhanced Oil Recovery technologies.
And 50% of this amount will be produced by CO2-EOR.
The Enhanced Oil Recovery industry represents a $30 Trillion market,
(in the USA) with oil priced at $100 per barrel.
Enhanced Oil Recovery technologies would solve our trade deficit problems, create thousands of new jobs, and save the U.S. economy almost $400 billion/year and end our reliance and dependence on foreign oil suppliers. At the same time, sequester billions of tons of Carbon Emissions, as Carbon Dioxide is used in producing previously non-recoverable oil. When an oil well or oil field reaches the end of its normal life, as much as 75% of the "original oil place" is still left underground in the oil wells. That's because recovering previously non-recoverable oil is either too difficult or too expensive, or both. It has been estimated that by recovering just 1% of the previously non-recoverable oil through Enhanced Oil Recovery technologies, that this would produce about 30 billion additional barrels of oil.
DOE estimates Colorado and Wyoming have
1.8 trillion barrels of oil that can be recovered with

What are the various EOR Technologies?
EOR Technologies describes a growing number of Enhanced Oil Recovery technologies used to recover oil in the third and final stage of oil production. Oil recovered in this stage may come close to or possibly exceed the oil that was produced in the primary and secondary stages. A few of the leading (and emerging) EOR technologies include:
Heavy Oil Recovery
Miscible Gas Flooding/Injection
Over the past forty years, the enhanced oil recovery industry has produced a number of excellent and proven EOR technologies.
However, the optimum EOR technology for any one particular client with declining oil production, is dependent on a number of variables that must be identified and understood before selecting the correct EOR technology, including;
Specific oil reservoir type / condition
Depth of pay zone
Interfacial tension or IFT ( displacement efficiency)
Mobility control (sweep efficiency)
Overall condition of well
Reservoir's brine (salinity NaCl) content
Working condition of reservoir
among others. The "optimum" EOR technology for one reservoir and pay zone may not be the optimum EOR technology for another - even within the same oil field. That's why we are "EOR technology neutral." We apply the optimum EOR technology for each client's specific requirements for maximizing our client's oil recovery, at the least possible cost.
Enhanced oil recovery represents a significant opportunity for companies with declining oil production to significantly increase their oil production and revenues through our range of EOR technologies and services.
How much more oil can we produce from our "mature" oil field and wells?
Enhanced oil recovery or "EOR" represents a significant opportunity for companies with declining oil production to significantly increase their oil production and revenues through our range of EOR technologies and services.
As seen above, there are a number of variables that determine the potential increase in production for any particular application.
With that said, some of the EOR technologies can have a significant reversal in oil production.
Would increasing your oil production from 20 bbls/day to 40 bbls/day for a 100% increase in oil production make a difference in your company's bottom line?

hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars every year for
oil, much of it from the Middle East, is just about the single stupidest
thing that modern society could possibly do. It’s very difficult to
think of anything more idiotic than that.”
~ R. James Woolsey, Jr., former Director of the CIA
According to R. James Woolsey, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, “The basic insight is to realize that global warming, the geopolitics of oil, and warfare in the Persian Gulf are not separate problems — they are aspects of a single problem, the West’s dependence on oil.”
