Net-Zero Emission (NZE) Production​

Hydrocarbon (HC) production is energy intensive and emits large amounts of CO2. ​ There is an urgent need to develop concepts and implement new energy-efficient solutions to produce HC resources at the lowest possible emissions. ​

Research questions​
  1. How to improve production for both conventional and tight reservoirs using CO2, polymer, smart water, and mobility control foam to save energy and significantly reduce the overall CO2 emissions?​
  2. What is the late life IOR potential combined with CO2 storage, and what is the optimal timing?​
  3. How can smart wells and advanced stimulation technologies contribute to improved production, in combination with remaining oil saturation measurements using partitioning tracers near wellbore?​
