CARBON CAPTURE AND STORAGE
The Grand Challenge of Carbon Capture and Sequestration
Even with the wealth of experience already in place within the oil and gas industry, the obstacles to advancing CCS to the forefront of greenhouse gas mitigation technologies remain significant.
Case Study: Design of Injection Facilities for CO2 Recovery
A pilot project demonstrates that facilities design plays an important role in providing sources of CO2 for the gas-handling process for injection into a carbonate formation as a tertiary recovery mechanism.
The Effect of CO2 Injection on Corrosion and Integrity of Facilities
The paper discusses the main factors affecting CO2 corrosion, provides an assessment of what to look for in major equipment, and details recommended material of construction and corrosion mitigation/control methods.
Galvanizing Stakeholder Support for Carbon Capture and Storage
Collaboration is critical to achieving recognition of the scope and value of carbon capture and storage and achieving acceptance for specific projects.
Combining Gas-to-Wire Technology With Carbon Capture and Storage
Natural gas, coupled with carbon capture and storage (CCS), could provide cheap and reliable energy in the long term and mitigate climate change. Gas-to-wire (GTW) generates electricity from natural gas at or near the field. This study applies an integrated GTW/CCS scheme to a gas-production field.
Surface-Facilities Design for First CO2 EOR Project in Saudi Arabia
A demonstration project of carbon capture, utilization, and storage through enhanced oil recovery was conducted in Saudi Arabia. Surface facilities for such projects are expensive to build and involve tradeoffs in options based on economics for a given set of conditions.
CO2 Capture and Usage: Harnessing the CO2 Content in Natural Gas for Environmental and Economic Gains
The deployment of appropriate CO2-separation technologies for natural gas processing is viewed as an abatement measure toward global CO2-emissions reduction. Selection of the optimum technology requires special attentiion.
Carbon Capture and Storage for Enhanced Oil Recovery: Integration and Optimization of a Post-Combustion CO2-Capture Facility at a Power Plant in Abu Dhabi
The authors discuss the results of a pilot project to capture post-combustion CO2 for purposes of EOR.
ONS Focuses on Change: Costs and Climate Change Take Center Stage
“Change” was the theme of Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) 2014 in Stavanger, Norway, in August. While commemorating the conference’s 40th anniversary, speakers called for changes in “business as usual.”
Energy-Efficient Technologies for Reduction of Offshore CO2 Emissions
This paper discusses novel technologies for increasing the energy efficiency of offshore oil and gas platforms. Three case studies are in progress that are based on actual oil-producing platforms—two on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) and one in the Brazilian basin.
Processing of Sour Natural Gas Reaches New Highs
ExxonMobil is testing its Controlled Freeze Zone technology, a single-step cryogenic process that allows carbon dioxide (CO2) to freeze in a controlled method and then melts the CO2. After recovery of the methane, the CO2 can be sequestered or used for EOR.
Flare-Gas Recovery in Tunisia—From Liability to Value
This paper describes the project evolution, from the first study to the implementable concept of energy production using the associated gas of two onshore facilities in Tunisia. Despite complex composition, high CO2, high H2S, and relatively low quantities, a solution was developed successfully.
