Center for North Sea oil expertise set to boost jobs and growth
Date:5/23/2012

The launch of a new centre of North Sea expertise today could boost jobs and growth in Scotland, accelerate development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) and unlock three billion barrels of hard-to-reach oil from the North Sea worth 190 billion.

The Centre for North Sea Enhanced Oil Recovery with CO2 (CENSEOR-CO2) will develop understanding of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technology, which creates a commercial use for CO2 captured from power plants and industry.

The Centre is being announced today (Wednesday) by Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond at the All-Energy conference in Aberdeen.

The technology could store 75 million tonnes of CO2 from each power plant CCS project, and increase the amount of oil removed from reservoirs beneath the sea by five to 25 percent.

The process involves injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) gas into oilfields deep beneath the sea bed, to force out additional volumes of oil.

To date, there has been no supply of CO2 to support implementation of industrial scale CO2-EOR in the North Sea, but UK carbon capture plans can change this.

EOR technology has been used in North America for decades. In the UK, it can be used in tandem with carbon capture and storage (CCS), a technology that will capture the necessary quantities of CO2 emissions from power stations. The captured CO2 would be transported to the North Sea where it is injected into oilfields, forcing out additional oil, with the CO2 remaining permanently stored deep underground.

The Centre, involving experts from two universities, will have funding from Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Government, matched by commercial funding from 2Co Energy Limited.

It will operate within Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage, a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University and the British Geological Survey.

The Edinburgh-based Centre will initially tackle the technical, regulatory
