PDO to pilot solar EOR in Oman

By OGJ editors

Petroleum Development Oman plans to install its first solar enhanced oil recovery pilot in one of its thermal EOR projects in southern Oman.

The 7 Mw solar EOR installation will reduce the amount of natural gas burned to generate steam in the project, according to GlassPoint Solar Inc.

Spanning more than 4 acres, the GlassPoint system will produce 11 tons/hr of high temperature (312 ˚C), high pressure (1,450 psi) steam. The company said the completed project will be 27 times larger than its solar EOR system installed at Berry Petroleum Co.’s 21Z oil field in Kern County, Calif. (OGJ Online, Feb. 24, 2011).
