Enhanced oil recovery via miscible flooding with CO2 is an increasingly viable substitute globally for water flooding, but each case requires careful project design and cost estimation of the CO2 transport system supplying the field. This article uses Egypt's Tut field as an example of how to determine the weight of particular design and cost variables.
Production from enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects supplies a growing percentage of the world's oil. About 3% of worldwide production now comes from EOR.1 2 Worldwide, the volume of oil produced by EOR doubled to 1.2-million b/d between 1982 and 1990 and doubled again to 2.5-million b/...
