DOE to issue funding opportunity announcement for enhanced oil recovery

The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) has issued a Notice of Intent for a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) expected to fund cost-shared research and development (R&D) projects that reduce technical risks associated with enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and expand application of EOR methods.

The objective of DE-FOA-0001988, Advanced Technologies for Enhanced Oil Recovery, will be to solicit and award competitively R&D projects that will focus primarily on developing enhanced recovery technologies in unconventional and conventional reservoirs.

Projects should also aid in the development of domestic unconventional fossil energy resources, as well as improve the understanding of reservoirs and improve low recovery factors from unconventional oil wells.

FE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will manage the selected projects, which will focus on two areas of interest: 1) EOR technologies for onshore conventional oil reservoirs and 2) EOR technologies for unconventional reservoirs.



Still waiting for the one that replaces most H2O with CO2.

Reducing the carbon emissions intensity of a fuel


Techniques for reducing a carbon emissions intensity of a fuel includes injecting a carbon dioxide fluid into a first wellbore; producing a hydrocarbon fluid from a second wellbore to a terranean surface; and producing a fuel from the produced hydrocarbon fluid, the fuel including a low-carbon fuel and assigned an emissions credit based on a source of the carbon dioxide fluid.
