BACKGROUND

The depleting natural resources and increasing challenges in exploring new oil field has saw the importance of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in oil production industry. EOR has been recognized by the Malaysian Government as one of the focus area in Oil & Gas NKEA in year 2011.

The Centre of Research in EOR was established in UniversitiTeknologiPetronas (UTP) in year 2006 to promote excellencein EOR research that mostly addresses the needs of industry and to managelaboratory services. Research in the area has continuouslyexpanded at UTP since 2006. Most EOR research projectsare conducted by the petroleum engineering staff and thetopics are mostly conventional topics such as subsurfacefluid flow, rock fluid interactions etc. In addition, there is an increasing interest from non-petroleum engineeringresearching EOR chemicals, application of waves, advancedmaterials among others.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) management is another challenges faced by the oil & gas industry. Nearly 40% of the world gas reservoir (approximately 2500 trillions cubic feet) contains high level of CO2 and H2S that pose obstacles to development. Up to 13 trillions cubic feet of high CO2-Natural Gas fields remain undeveloped in Malaysia. Development of CO2-Natural Gas separation technologies will enable monetization gas fields in Malaysia.

The Mission Oriented Research for CO2 Management in UTP is currently focusing on research activities in the separation technologies especially on adsorption, absorption, membrane, cryogenic, high gravitational separation and hybrid system including corrosion study. There are also some fundamental work currently on-going related to CO2 utilization and transportation.

The visit to Centre of Research in EOR and CO2 Management Centre would extent the knowledge ofengineers on research areas and applicationsonEOR and CO2 management challenges in oil & gas industry.
