Gaz de France has signed a cooperation agreement with the Vattenfall Group for a CO2 injection and enhanced gas recovery pilot project in Germany.
Under this agreement, Erdgas Erdöl GmbH Berlin (EEG), a 100% exploration-production affiliate of Gaz de France in Germany, will use CO2 for the enhancement of gas recovery (EGR) from its almost depleted Altmark gas field, the second-largest onshore field in Europe. Vattenfall will deliver the carbon dioxide required for this process from its own power plant processes.
This project, which will contribute to Gaz de France’s research program on capture, injection and storage of CO2, will need approximately 15 months to implement.
Gaz de France is involved in several European projects focused on CO2storage, including injection experiments on the K12-B field in the Dutch North Sea.
