Project Objectives

The goal of this project is to make EOR at small producer fields feasible, by developing truckportable equipment for generating CO2 on-site and at a scale of operation of approximately 1 million cubic feet per day. This is sufficient to generate about 100 additional barrels of oil per day, a relevant rate for many small oil producers.
