DOE Grants $20m to North Dakota for EOR Projects



The Department of Energy today announced a series of grants in enhanced oil recovery projects in North Dakota:


CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery Improvement in Conventional Fields Using Rich Gas –The University of North Dakota (Grand Forks, ND) aims to determine the effect of injecting blended carbon dioxide (CO2) and rich gas into an active CO2 EOR field to improve production performance. Positive test results will support the development of infrastructure and a market for stranded gas.


DOE Funding: $8,000,000; Non-DOE Funding: $2,000,000; Total Value: $10,000,000


Improving Enhanced Oil Recovery Performance through Data Analytics and Next-Generation Controllable Completions – The University of North Dakota (Grand Forks, ND) aims to field-test an advanced machine learning approach to enable active (smart) well control during CO2EOR. Successful completion of this field-based research will help reduce uncertainty associated with CO2 EOR performance and improve project economics.


DOE Funding: $8,000,000; Non-DOE Funding: $2,000,000; Total Value: $10,000,000
