    Brownsort, Peter; Carruthers, Kit; Dundas Consulting; Element Energy; Haszeldine, R Stuart; Johnson, Gareth; Kapila, Rudra; Kemp, Alex; Littlecott, Chris; Mabon, Leslie; Mackay, Eric; Macrory, Richard; Meyvis, Bruno; Olden, Peter; Paisley, Roderick; Paterson, John; Pickup, Gillian; Piessens, Kris; Stewart, Jamie; Turk, Jeremy; Turner, Karen; Welkenhuysen, Kris (SCCS, 2015-06)
    This report shows that accelerating deployment of CCS can enable CO2- EOR in the UKCS. Part of the CO2 that would otherwise need to go directly to dedicated storage in CCS projects can be used to drive CO2–EOR. That gives ...
  • CO₂-EOR in the UK: Analysis of fiscal incentives

  • CO₂-EOR: Security of Storage 

    Olden, Peter; Mackay, Eric; Pickup, Gillian; Stewart, R Jamie; Johnson, Gareth (Scottish Carbon Capture and Sporage, 2015-03-31)
    Preliminary studies from CO2-EOR in Canada have suggested that, in CO2-EOR settings, solubility trapping takes place within both aqueous and hydrocarbon phases. As such it is postulated that CO2-EOR may provide a greater ...
  • Environmental Impacts of CO₂-EOR 

    Carruthers, Kit (SCCS, 2014-06)
    The aim of this report is to identify the potential environmental impacts on the marine environment of offshore activities which are unique to CO2-EOR, or which may pose additional significant issues not encountered in ...
  • Environmental Impacts of CO₂-EOR: The Offshore UK Context 

    Carruthers, Kit (SCCS, 2014-03-19)
    The aim of this report is to identify the potential environmental impacts on the marine environment of offshore activities which are unique to CO2-EOR, or which may pose additional significant issues not encountered in ...
  • Legal Status of CO₂ – Enhanced Oil Recovery 

    Macrory, Richard; Armeni, Chiara; Clarke, Chris; Docherty, Sarah; Van Der Marel, Eva; Milligan, Ben; Purdy, Ray (SCCS, 2013)
    This report examines key issues concerning the application of current law to the injection of CO2 associated with enhanced oil recovery operations. Its focus is on the applicable law within the United Kingdom including ...

  • Measurement, Monitoring and Verification: Enhanced Oil Recovery and Carbon Dioxide Storage 

    Boait, Fran; JafarGandomi, Arash; Johnson, Gareth (SCCS, 2015-03-06)
    This report assesses the differences between monitoring technology requirements for CO2 storage in a saline or depleted hydrocarbon reservoir and in a hydrocarbon reservoir, when CO2 injection is used for enhanced oil ...
  • Offshore offloading of CO₂: Review of single point mooring types and suitability 

    Brownsort, Peter (SCCS, 2015-05)
