Abstract

The purpose of the project is to develop a framework, which will enhance students' skills in the process of applying knowledge, expending thoughts, solving problems independently and presenting findings through minimum guidance and supervision The title for this research project is 'Utilization of C02 for Enhanced Oil Recovery'. C02 is a colorless and odorless gas that exists in the atmosphere in small quantity. However it is one of major greenhouse gases that have a significant impact in society, economics and environment. The increase in anthropogenic or human-related in the accumulation of C02 in atmosphere as the amount ofC02 emitted is greater than that consumed. In Malaysia, liquid hydrocarbon fuel has been the major contributing source of C02 emission. C02 emission from gaseous hydrocarbon fuel has been increased tremendously in the 1990s, as a result of the impact of global warming and climate change, there is a significant international effort including the emissions of C02. This study is carried out to recommend technically viable C02 management for enhanced oil recovery. EOR refers to any process used to increase the ultimate recovery from the reservoir except the injection ofplain water or low-pressure gas into a reservoir. It can be at the secondary stage or at the tertiary stage. US National Petroleum Council defined EOR in their Enhanced Oil Recovery report (1976) as; Enhanced oil recovery is the additional recovery of oil from a petroleum reservoir over that which can be economically recovered by conventional primary and secondary methods. Atechnically more restrictive definition, EOR consists of methods aimed at increasing ultimate oil recovery by injecting appropriate agents not normally present in the reservoir to induce new mechanisms for displacing oil.
